North Toronto Real Estate
North Toronto - Midtown
More broadly, it is also labelled Midtown which includes a grouping of Davisville, Eglinton and Bedford Park and has a good mix of detached and homes and semis.
The original houses were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of them have been torn down and replaced with larger homes. There are also presigious condominiums like Bedford Glen, a development on Sylvan Valley Way, which are a set of low-rise terraced apartments and townhouses in a secluded ravine setting.Lawrence Park South has detached Georgian houses on large lots with older, larger trees. Some of this area's appeal is its proximity to high end schools and parks.
Both Yonge Lawrence Village and Eglinton way have a good cross-section of stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. The Avenue Road shopping district, north of Lawrence, has a diverse mix of shops and restaurants including national chain stores and gourmet food shops.

Parks and Recreation
The neighbourhood's main attraction is Wanless Park, an island of green space right in the centre of the neighbourhood. This social and recreational hub has five floodlit tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball diamond, a tots' playground and a wading pool. The Wanless Park Community Tennis Club offers lessons, instruction, social events, clubs, teams, and tournaments for adults and juniors.
The Woburn Parkette, west of Yonge street, is a popular destination point for neighbourhood parents with toddlers and preschoolers. It features a tots' playground and a wading pool. A few blocks north of the Woburn Parkette is The Fairlawn Neighbourhood Centre, which operates out of the Fairlawn Heights United Church and includes seasonal programming for residents of all ages.
Further south, the North Toronto Community Centre on Eglinton Avenue just east of Avenue Road is another popular destination for fitness enthusiasts, as is Sherwood Park which has a lovely walking path highlighted by some of the oldest and largest trees in the city.
