High Park Toronto Real Estate

The HIGH PARK neighbourhood contains a wealth of history. The area north of Bloor Street was formerly part of the Town of West Toronto Junction, which was annexed by the City of Toronto in 1909.The High Park property south of Bloor Street was purchased in 1836 by John Howard, Toronto's first surveyor. Howard named his estate High Park because of its magnificent view of Lake Ontario. He became a great benefactor to the City when he gave it his vast estate and his home, Colborne Lodge, in 1873.

Roncesvalles Street
In 1873 Howard deeded his beloved High Park estate to the City of Toronto. John Howard's former residence Colborne Lodge, is still situated on its original site in High Park, where it is now a museum. The High Park neighbourhood's highly regarded schools, including Humberside Collegiate, attract many families with school age children to this neighbourhood.
