Neighbourhoods

Swansea is bounded on the west by the Humber River, on the north by Bloor Street, on the east by High Park and on the south by Lake Ontario. The neighbourhood was originally a separate municipality, the Village of Swansea, which was annexed by the City of Toronto in 1967.

Roncesvalles is a safe, stylish, and diverse community centered around Roncesvalles Avenue, a fifteen-block string of local businesses bustling with residents doing their daily shopping, enjoying a coffee or just going for stroll. The street has long been known as the cultural and commercial centre of Toronto's Polish diaspora, and recently, many new families have been attracted by its unique community atmosphere, making the area home to a wide range of people of all ages.

Sunnylea is a highly desirable neighbourhood, attractive in particular to young families. It radiates a country charm and is full of nature - large, mature oaks and maples line its streets, the quiet roads often do without sidewalks, and the beautiful Mimico Creek meanders through its centre.

Bloor West Village is a vibrant neighbourhood and shopping district in Toronto. Situated along Bloor Street just east of the Humber River, it is comprised of many small businesses along Bloor Street between Jane Street and Ellis Park Road. There are over 400 shops, restaurants and services, mostly home-grown businesses and very few chain stores. The mix of shops includes specialty clothing stores, book shops, restaurants and cafes. The businesses organized in 1970 into the first mandatory business improvement district, an idea that has spread to numerous other commercial streets in Toronto and to cities around the world.

The Kingsway is a residential neighbourhood located in the former City of Etobicoke, an area that became the west end of Toronto upon amalgamation in 1998. It is bounded by Bloor Street to the south, Dundas Street to the north, the Mimico Creek to the west and the Humber River to the east. While the area was first known as "Kingsway Park", popular usage drifted to "The Kingsway", that being the name of the main road which winds through the heart of the area. "The Kingsway" is also the name of the Business Improvement Association business district along Bloor Street. The Kingsway is one of the more affluent areas in Toronto, the 2012 average price of a detached house was $1,931,065.
