Teddington Park

History:

In 1912, Teddington Park was the northern most boundary of Toronto. It became a high-end residential area at around the same time, because of the move of the prestigioues Rosedale Golf Club from Rosedale to Teddington Park. Luxury homes were built and were given descriptive names, instead of addresses, to show the importance of each house. Some of the houses still stand today, and their names can be found on the property.

Description:

The main shopping district in this neighbourhood is the Yonge Lawrence Village. This area provides for every member of the family. There are toy stores and pet stores, boutique clothing shops, service stores, and plenty of restaurants and cafes of all different types, among others.

There is the Bedford Park Community Centre in the area, which has a gym and a pool.
