Overview

The Teddington Park neighbourhood is one of the smallest and most exclusive districts in Toronto. Over the years many important and influential Torontonians have called this neighbourhood their home.

Teddington Park is conveniently located along the Yonge Street corridor however, it is remarkably quiet thanks to its natural boundaries which include the Rosedale Golf Club and the Riverview Drive Ravine.

Homes

Teddington Park's houses were built between 1910 and 1935. The signature street in the neighbourhood is Teddington Park Avenue, a wide tree-lined boulevard that contains large Tudor and Georgian style houses.

Riverview Drive is a winding, countryfied road, lined by majestic maple trees. The properties on Riverview Drive are especially large as many of these homes back onto the Riverview Drive Ravine.
