ALL YOU NEED FROM A DECENT COMMUNITY

Bedford Park is a suburb just outside the downtown core of Toronto. It borders Lawrence Park (to the southeast) which was ranked Canada's wealthiest neighborhoods in 2011. 

The Bedford Park neighbourhood is geared toward families with young children. This neighbourhood has an excellent selection of public, private and catholic schools. There are many parkettes and playgrounds, a community centre, a library, and convenient access to Toronto’s transit system.

 

Bedford Park began as a farming hamlet centred around the crossroads of Yonge Street and Lawrence Avenue. This village was a popular stopover for farmers travelling to and from the markets in Toronto. It is likely that Bedford Park is named after the Bedford Park Hotel which opened in 1873 at the south west corner of Yonge Street and Fairlawn Avenue. In 1890 the Metropolitan Street Railway expanded its streetcar line northward to service Bedford Park. That same year Bedford Park, no longer a remote outpost, would amalgamate with the Town of North Toronto which would ultimately be annexed by the City of Toronto in 1912. A period of rampant land speculation was then followed by registered plans of subdivision that would create the current residential neighbourhood. Bedford Park’s original housing stock was built mostly in the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

Ed Note: The former Bedford Park General Store and Post Office building is still standing at the south-west corner of Yonge Street and Bedford Park Avenue.

Yonge and Lawrence Village is a family-centric uptown shopping destination earning its reputation as a happening, tight-knit community with a diverse offering of culture, food and fun. If you live in the Bedford Park, Lawrence Park, Teddington Park or Wanless Park neighbourhoods these spots might not be news to you, but we want to spread the word and let people know it’s worth the trip to this neighbourhood. Here’s what we’ve come up with.

Bedford Park has a good mix of detached and semi-detached homes. The original housing stock was built between 1890 and 1940. However, most of the bungalows in the neighbourhood have recently been torn down and replaced with custom designed new homes with all the bells and whistles.
