Lawrence Park was one of Toronto's first planned garden suburbs. Begun in the early part of the 20th century, the building of houses was interrupted by two world wars, a recession and a depression. It wasn’t until the 1950s that this neighbourhood was completed. It is now one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in all of Canada. The neighborhood is located in a setting that includes gently rolling hills, several parks, and a ravine.
With 9 public schools, 4 Catholic schools, and 2 private schools in this neighbourhood, your kids can get a great education.
This neighbourhood is park heaven, with 3 parks and community recreation facilities within its boundaries, including:
With 2 rail transit stops and 58 street-level transit stops in the neighbourhood, it's easy to get around.
