Denlow

History:

Denlow is part of a group of neighbourhoods- York Mills- Bayview- St Andrews- Windfields- that were all developed together around the same landmarks. Taylor, a local magnate and horse breeder, first developed the York Mills Plaza. Soon after this, he sold his estate to developers. Eventually, Denlow Estates was created in the 1960’s. These estates were completely redone, which highly increased their value.

Description:

For shopping needs, there is the York Mills Plaza at Bayview and York Mills. This plaza has a lot of high-end stores such as vintage wine stores, gourmet desserts shops, designer clothing stores, and fancy coffee shops and restaurants. There is also the Bayview Village Shopping Centre, which has many designer stores as well. A little further away is Shops at Don Mills, which is another plaza for the elite shopper.

Residents of Denlow have the beautiful Edwards Gardens to walk through, which also has the Toronto Botanical Garden, which is one of Canada’s finest public gardening centres. Edwards Gardens has ponds, waterfalls, gardens and extensive green spaces to walk or picnic on. There is the nine kilometre paved trail that goes through the Don River Valley and meets the Warden Woods Park in Scarborough. It also passes through Sunnybrook Park, which has facilities for cricket, soccer, rugby, and field hockey.
