Wychwood Neighbourhood of Toronto
Tree-lined streets and dense greenery is what makes Wychwood neighbourhood feel like you are far away from the busy city of Toronto. Wychood is surrounded roughly by Oakwood Ave and Dovercourt Rd to the west, Bathurst Street to the east, just north of St. Clair Avenue W to the north and the CN Rail tracks to the south.
Known to be a family-oriented neighbourhood, Wychwood has many public and catholic schools in the area including McMurrich Jr Public School, Winona Drive Sr Public School. There are also many green spaces in the area including Hillcrest Park, Wychwood Barns Park, Garrison Creek Park, the Tollkeeper’s Park and many others. Wychood Barns features a children’s playground, an open sports field with a natural ice rink in the winter, a fenced in dog off-leash area, a beach volleyball court and picnic tables. Hillcrest Park, on the other hand, features a ball diamond, basketball court, four outdoor tennis courts, wading pool, community garden and so much more! Not to be missed is the view of the city skyline and Lake Ontario! With the abundance of attractions in the area, you’ll never run out of things to do.
The heart of Wychood neighbourhood is at Artscape Wychood Barns. It is an all-round community meeting place that hosts seasonal festivals, a year-round farmer’s market, greenhouse and community bake oven. If you don’t find what you need at the farmer’s market, you’ll be able to find other retail options located along St. Clair Avenue W, Vaughan, Bathurst and Davenport.
