Scarborough Area

 

Scarborough is a dissolved municipality within the city of Toronto,Ontario Canada. Geographically, it comprises the eastern part of Toronto. It is bordered on the south by lake Ontario, on the west by Victoria Park Avenue, on the north by Steeles Avenue East, and on the east by the Rouge River and the City of Pickering. Initially a collection of rural villages, it has become a diverse urban community. Over 200 years it grew from a township to a city, changing regions to Metropolitan Toronto in 1954, and eventually Amalgamated to the city of Toronto in 1998. It was named after the English town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire in 1796 by Elizabeth Simcoe, who was inspired by the Scarborough Bluffs which reminded her of white cliffs near her home.

Scarborough has characteristics of a suburb of Old Toronto, but retains much of its own character and flavour. Certain neighbourhoods in Scarborough are popular destinations for new immigrants to Canada. As a result, Scarborough is one of the most diverse and multicultural areas of the Greater Toronto Area, being home to various religious groups and places of worship. It includes some of Toronto's popular natural landmarks, such as the Scarborough Bluffs and Rouge Park. Scarborough has been declared to be greener than any other part of Toronto.
