Welcome to Leaside, Toronto

Overview

Leaside is right in the centre of the city, but it feels like a village. The area takes its name from William Lea and the Lea family, who settled there in the early years of the nineteenth century. It has developed into a shopping destination filled with boutiques and restaurants that line Bayview Avenue. Demographically, the Leaside community is made up predominantly of single-family homes housing upper-middle-class families. The southern tip of the neighbourhood is known as Bennington Heights.
