Welcome to the neighbourhood.
LIFE ON THE PARK.
Located directly across from Bayview Village Park, Hillcrest on the Park is perfectly situated between Toronto’s Willowdale and Bayview Village neighbourhoods. Bayview Village Mall is a 600 meter walk, Bayview Station is just 900 meters and access to the 401 and DVP/404 is just minutes away. There are multiple local school options which are some of the tops in Toronto including an excellent Montessori school.
Bayview Village affords a chic environment to its residents, who rarely feel the need to traverse to downtown hangouts in order to enjoy the vibrancy of big city Toronto life. Despite having a high traffic artery like Sheppard Avenue East running through its midst, his neighbourhood is quietly residential on weekends. Almost a quarter of its area is dominated by lush green parks, parkettes, and the majestic East Don Parklands.
Life for Bayview Villagers revolves around the Bayview Village mall with its own Loblaws supercentre and LCBO; a Canadian Tire, and the North York location of IKEA. The neighbourhood is home to the Bayview Village Residents Association, The Bayview Village Park, Rean Park and the North York General Hospital. Kids go to excellent institutions like the Earl Haig Secondary School and the Elkhorn Public School.
Bayview Village has three subway stops east of the Yonge-University-Spadina line, along Sheppard Avenue East. TTC buses regularly ply on route 85 between Yonge Street in the west end and Don Mills in the east. From any given point in this area, access to the highway 401 ramp is a paltry two minute drive away. Oriole Go station is another option for area commuters who work in distant GTA locations.
It’s hard to find something wrong with Bayview Village, there is something for everyone. The area propounds the haute lifestyle, offering not just options for shopping, but also safe and clean walking spaces, or to meet peers for relaxed brunches and coffees.
A large part of North York, Willowdale is an affluent community centred around Yonge St. from Steeles Ave. down to the 401, and from Bayview to Senlac Rd. It has gained in popularity as its amenities continue to grow and new condo development changes its landscape. It’s prized for being located on the subway lines, and offers easy access to all parts of the city.
Being a perfect blend of suburban and urban, Willowdale offers the best of both worlds. Willowdale is sometimes distinguished between its eastern and western parts and the vibe varies depending on where exactly you are in the neighbourhood. Willowdale East is more city-like and has an abundance of restaurants, pubs and cafes in the area. It’s also much more populated than its western counterpart.
The diversity of the neighbourhood is reflected in the large amount of ethno-cultural restaurants, particularly along Yonge Street. Empress Walk is a mixed-use building and a staple in North York. The first three floors of retail space contain Loblaws, Staples and a Cineplex theatre. North York Civic Centre features Douglas Snow Aquatic Centre, North York Central Library and Mel Lastman Square. The area is also home to the TDSB.
Willowdale gets a huge nod for accessibility. Buses run frequently and connect you to all subway lines, with both the Yonge and the Sheppard lines at the heart of the community. Viva and York Region Transits serve Willowdale. The subway station and GO transit bus terminal are located on Yonge Street and Finch Avenue. If you’re parking at the station it adds $5 a day to your daily commuting costs.
