Bennington Heights is one of Toronto’s most exclusive and expensive neighbourhoods. Over the years it has been the home of many prominent Torontonians including author Margaret Atwood (whose highly acclaimed novel Cat’s eye, is loosely based on her childhood growing up in Bennington Heights).
The neighbourhood is bound by the bluffs of the Don River Valley ravine and Mount Pleasant Cemetery. These natural barriers help preserve its peaceful tranquility and its winding roads, cul-de-sac and ravine properties all add to the charm of owning a home in this neighbourhood.
The neighbourhood’s original English Manor stone houses were built in the 1920s and 30sand its Cottage-style two-storey homes and bungalows were built in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
Residents can shop for all of their household needs at the plaza located on the south-east corner of Bayview and Moore Avenues, which features a grocery store, pharmacy and a bank. Further north on Bayview Avenue is the Leaside shopping district which contains an excellent selection of specialty stores, food shops and restaurants.
Bennington Park has a nice view of the Don River Valley and is home to the Bennington Heights Tennis Club. Next to the park is the Bennington Heights School which has a soccer field, two baseball diamonds, and a large children’s playground. Evergreen Gardens Park, off of Moore Avenue also has a children’s playground. Nature lovers and fitness enthusiasts can access the Moore Park Ravine walking trail from Moore Avenue east of Hudson Drive or from the Bayview Avenue extension. The Moore Park trail is a remnant of the former Belt Line Railway, a commuter train that serviced Toronto in the early 1890s.
The Moore Avenue bus connects passengers to the St. Clair station on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line. Motorists can hop on the Bayview extension which will usher them downtown in minutes or provide access to the Don Valley Parkway and a network of connecting highways leading into and out of the city.
