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.
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.
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.
