About The Neighbourhood
Lansing-Westgate is located in the central area of the North York district of Toronto. It originated as a minor settlement of a store and a post office at the corner of Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue.
The area was developed into a residential neighbourhood of mostly single-family owned and occupied homes between 1910 and the 1950s. In the older portions nearest Yonge Street, the homes are one- and two-storey pre-war houses. In the newest areas, homes consist of modest one-and-a-half-storey postwar houses. More recently, some families have bought one or two bungalows and torn them down to build the home of their dreams.
Local parks include Addington Greenbelt, Earl Bales Park, the Hinder Property, Grendolen Park, and Stuart Greenbelt. Most of these parks are situated near the Don Valley, which forms a part of the larger Toronto ravine system. Earl Bales Park also operates a ski hill during the winter.
Lansing-Westgate combines a peaceful, family-friendly vibe with easy access to the hustle and bustle of the city.
