South Kingsway / Brulé Gardens

Overview

  • Bordered by Bloor Street south to Riverside Drive/The Queensway, South Kingsway west to the Humber River
  • In Toronto, it’s a rare neighbourhood that can trace its modern history back to 1615. But Swansea’s records and historical plaques show that fur trader Étienne Brulé made a well-documented journey down the Humber River. The route of the Humber River was used for centuries by aboriginal peoples, and the banks of the river have many archaeological sites
  • Characterized by developer Robert Home Smith’s builds of half-timbered houses and stone cottages in the picturesque style of those in England. Today, many appreciate the exceptional lot sizes within this quiet residential enclave.  Deer, fox and other beautiful wildlife can be spotted throughout this west Toronto pocket giving a sense of country living in the city.
  • Walk to Bloor West Village shopping, cafés, restaurants and the subway.  Lake Ontario, the Old Mill, downtown, highways and both airports are only mere driving minutes away.
