    History of East York

    The Township of East York was incorporated on January 1, 1924. At that time East York was comprised mostly of market gardens, a handful of brick making yards and a race horse track that was located in the area bound by Oak Park, Lumsden, Chisholm and Danforth Avenues.





    In its early years, East York's population consisted mostly of employees of the local market gardens and brick yards as well as returning World War One veterans and their families. East York's largest period of growth took place between 1946 and 1961 when the housing supply nearly doubled in size.

    East York held the distinction of being Canada's only Borough until 1998 when it was amalgamated into the City of Toronto. The fact that East York chose to remain a Borough for so long rather than incorporate as a city speaks volumes for the neighbourliness and small town friendliness that has been an East York trademark ever since its formation in 1924.


    East York Overview

    For many years East York has held the distinction of having the highest percentage of senior citizens in Metropolitan Toronto. These demographics are changing however as many young families are now moving into this neighbourhood. Home buyers are finding East York attractive because the houses are relatively affordable and the location offers quick and easy access to downtown Toronto.


    H  O  M  E  S

    The majority of East York's housing stock was built in stages beginning in the 1890's and continuing right up until the early 1960's. With the houses having been built over such a wide period of time, a myriad of different housing styles is evident from one street to the next.

    East York is comprised of two storey or one-and-a half-storey detached and semi-detached houses, as well as an abundance of bungalows, and some newer custom designed homes. There are also a large number of high rise rental apartment buildings concentrated along Cosburn Avenue between Broadview and Donlands Avenues.





    S  H  O  P  P  I  N  G

    The majority of shopping in East York is located on the main north-south arterial roadways including Pape, Donlands, Greenwood, Coxwell, and Woodbine Avenues.

    At the south end of East York, Danforth Avenue provides shoppers with a colourful array of fruit markets, bakeries, coffee shops, clothing and accessory stores and Toronto's best selection of Greek restaurants.

    East York is brimming with both indoor and outdoor recreational facilities.

    The East York Tennis Club on Roosevelt Road has five tennis courts, Dentonia Park Tennis Club off Dawes road has four courts and East York Collegiate has four courts. The Dentonia Park Golf Course located off Victoria Park Avenue is a challenging eighteen hole public course with a moderately difficult rating.

    Stan Wadlow Park off Cosburn Avenue features five baseball diamonds and a batting cage. The excellent baseball facilities at this park helped produce the likes of Rich and Rob Butler, two native East Yorkers that went on to play major league baseball.

    Stan Wadlow Park also contains, two outdoor swimming pools, a handball wall, and picnic areas. It also serves as an access point to Taylor Creek Park, part of a nine kilometre paved trail that is ideal for nature walks, jogging, and cycling. Adjacent to Stan Wadlow Park is the East York Memorial Arena which provides recreational and league hockey programs as well as public skating. Across the street from Stan Wadlow Park is the East York Curling Club. The Dieppe Park Sports Complex at Greenwood and Cosburn has an outdoor ice rink, sports fields and a baseball diamond.

    The newly refurbished East York Community Centre at 1081 Pape Avenue has an indoor pool, a multi-purpose gymnasium, a weight room, and a small public library. The S. Walter Stewart Library at 170 Memorial Park Avenue features a large auditorium for storytelling and puppet shows. The Dawes Road Library at 416 Dawes Road also has children's programming.

    The Secord Community Centre at 91 Barrington Avenue and the Terry Fox Community Centre at 2 Gledhill Avenue have gymnasiums as well as community meeting rooms.

    Alex gets it done. He has helped us sell two properties, purchase one and lease two others. I appreciate his no nonsense but professional approach. If you follow his advice you will get what you're after. On our last sale we got over asking with no conditions!

    Hi Alex,

    It was a real pleasure to work with you on this. As you can imagine after so long in the house and the parents finally making a decision to sell, it became a very anxious time for them as well as for us. However, you were very helpful, responsive, always kept us posted and helped to answer any questions we had. We were also very impressed that you had a strategy all figured out in which to sell the home. Thank you so much for all your help with this Alex. It has been a little over a week since we initially contacted you and I speak for all of us when I say that you have reaffirmed that we made the right decision to contact you and not someone else. Thank You!

    I want to thank Alex for selling our home so quickly and over list price. Alex is all business and very thorough. You can trust Alex. His marketing skills are incredible. He brilliantly planted the sign on our lawn before the listing became active. This made local residents aware that our home was available and generated even more activity. His staff are equally professional. I am recommending Alex to friends and family.

    Dear Alex 


    Hope you are keeping well. It has been a pleasure doing business with you as well as having a friend. You always seem to care about me as a person and thank you for that. You always listen to what I had to say and we had many laughs. Thank you for getting the home inspector Rob and lawyer Allen to help me out. They were wonderful people to deal with. A gift came for me today and I was very excited. I ran out to Home Depot and use the gift card towards a gas BBQ. Woo Hoo!!!!!! Now I am really cooking lol. Thank you so much Alex, you are a very special person. I wish you much success in the future.

    Yours truly,
