Beach / Beaches Toronto Real Estate

The Toronto Beach/Beaches were first settled by the Ashbridge family who came to Canada from Philadelphia, in 1793. Ashbridge's Bay Park is named after these pioneers. The Ashbridges and a handful of other families farmed this district until the latter part of the 1800's, when many of The Beach properties were subdivided and large parcels of land were set aside for local parks.

Woodbine, Kew Gardens, Scarboro, Balmy Beach and Victoria Park collectively became Toronto's playgrounds by the lake, attracting many summer cottagers to the area. Over the years The Beach has emerged as one of Toronto's most popular neighbourhoods. On most weekends, the sidewalks are so packed with strollers and dog-walkers that it can be hard to navigate through this beautiful, tightly knit community! The Toronto Hunt Club can be added to the network of waterfront and other parks including Woodbine Beach and Ashbridges Bay Park.
