Lytton Park

History

Lytton Parks development began with the Metropolitan Street Railway in 1886. Prior to this Lytton Park was a rural outpost with limited access to Toronto.

The Metropolitan Company realized the impact the railway service would have on land values and consequently purchased the two hundred acre Beatty farm. In 1888 the Beatty farm became the “Glen Grove Park” subdivision and the residential development of Lytton Park began. It’s major growth was in 1912 when it became part of the City of Toronto. It was during the next fifteen years that most of Lytton Park’s houses, schools, churches and parks were built.

Community

Lytton Park is one of Toronto’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. It is one of those enclaves that makes Toronto a city of surprises and is the home of many professionals who value both its charm and convenient access leading in and out of the city.

Lytton Park is well served by many upscale shopping districts located along Yonge Street, Avenue Road and Eglinton Avenue.

Lytton Park has outstanding recreational facilities including tennis courts, lawn bowling and in the winter time an artificial outdoor ice rink. Wonderful parks, gardens and nature trails through a ravine, serve to provide a calm serene neighbourhood. Close proximity to excellent public and private schools make Lytton Park a perfect place to raise your family.

Homes

Lytton Park’s Tudor and Georgian style homes were built between 1890 and 1930 on good sized lots with huge trees that produce a wonderful overlay in summer and turn the streets into an arctic wonderland in winter. Many of the homes have been updated and renovated for today's busy lifestyles however they continue to maintain their original charm and traditional accents.
