Forest Hill Neighbourhood Info



View Larger Map

The Forest Hill neighborhood was first known as Spadina Heights, taking its name from the word for “hill”; Ishapadenah. It became an incorporated village in 1923 and was named after John Wickson’s summer residence which was built in 1860, located where Eglinton Ave. and Old Forest Hill Rd. met. By 1967, it was annexed by Toronto as one of the last two independent villages.

Currently, it’s divided into Forest Hill North and South, or Upper and Lower. Forest South spans south from Tichester Rd. to Eglinton Ave., western Bathurst St. to northeastern Elmsthorpe Rd., and to the east at Oriole Parkway and Avenue Rd. North of Lonsdale Road there is an extension between Spadina Rd. and Bathurst St.

Eglinton Ave. West to Briar Hill Ave. South, and from Latimer Ave. in the eastern area to Fairleigh Crescent and Allen Rd. in the southwest and northwest combine to make up Forest Hill North.

The quiet winding roads, magnificent shade trees, soft hills, and the many small parks all blend together to enhance the stately Forest Hill homes in this prestigious neighborhood. Architecturally speaking, the style is individual and ranges from the French provincial terra cotta tiles, to Tudor boarding homes, to English or Georgian country manors. Immaculate lawns and amazing landscaping is in keeping with this vicinity.

The real estate in Forest Hill is highly sought after, partially due to its easy downtown access, high-end shopping, outstanding local schools, and nearness to the paved 14.5 kilometer Belt Line fitness/nature trail. Evidence that Forest Hill real estate is in high demand are the many extensive renovation projects being experienced in the area.
