Overview

Lytton Park is one of Toronto's most exclusive neighbourhoods. It is home to doctors, lawyers, stockbrokers and corporate executives who value Lytton Park's quiet charm, and its convenient access to transportation corridors leading in and out of the city.

Lytton Park's other assets include beautiful homes on large lots, outstanding recreational facilities, and a close proximity to excellent public and private schools.

Homes

Lytton Park's Tudor and Georgian style houses were built primarily between 1890 and 1930. All of the houses are detached, and are situated on large lots with lush gardens.

The interior of a typical Lytton Park house includes traditional accents such as hardwood floors, leaded glass windows, and a wood burning fireplace.

Shopping

Lytton Park is well served by a myriad of upscale shopping districts located along Yonge Street, Avenue Road and Eglinton Avenue West. You may require a car or public transit to reach these shopping areas depending on where you are located within the neighbourhood.

Recreation

Lytton Park, from which this neighbourhood takes its name, is nestled in a deep valley, hidden by trees, from the roaring traffic of Avenue Road above. This serene park includes three public tennis courts, and is also home to the North Toronto Lawn Bowling Club. Across from Lytton Park is the Herbert Begg Memorial Garden. This picturesque strolling garden was donated to the City by Herbert Begg's daughters as a memorial to their father.

Otter Creek Park, on Cheritan Avenue between Chatsworth Drive and Rosewell Avenue, contains four tennis courts that are retrofitted for use as an artificial ice rink in the wintertime. This park also provides access to the Chatsworth Ravine. A Nature Trail passes through the Chatsworth Ravine on it's way through Lawrence Park, the Blythwood Ravine and finally to Sherwood Park.
