Cricket Club


The Cricket Club was originally settled by a Scotsman named Andrew McGlashan in the early 1800's.
In 1907 the property was sold to William George Gooderham, the owner of the Gooderham and Worts distillery. Fortuitously, Gooderham discovered a spring of fresh water on the hillside and consequently, set up a company which bottled and sold this water around the world until the 1920's.

Gooderham played a key role in the development of the Cricket Club neighbourhood as well as helping in the formation of the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club. The Club opened in 1925 and has been a neighbourhood landmark ever since


The Cricket Club neighbourhood is a very family oriented community with a relaxed, country charm ambience.
The residents enjoy terrific shopping, fine dining as well as the convenience of professional and medical offices nearby. If your sporting love is golf, the Don Valley Golf Course is very scenic, nearby and open to the public. The Cricket Club is one of Toronto's premier private clubs. its facilities include skating, curling, tennis, cricket, squash and swimming plus excellent dining.


Most of the Cricket Club homes were built between 1920 and 1940 and include 2 and 3 bedroom bungalows, 3 and 4 bedroom 2 storey homes, plus some lovely, spacious centre hall Georgian and Tudor style homes. This very popular neighbourhood is also experiencing some redevelopment with new 2 storey luxury homes replacing some of the smaller bungalows.
