The welcoming neighbourhood of Sunnylea is very popular with young families drawn to the meandering Mimico Creek that flows through the centre of the community. The abundance of mature trees forms a lush canopy of green adding to its country charm.
The old farming community of Sunnylea was subdivided into what would form the present day neighbourhood in the 1930’s and 40’s with most of the bungalow, split-level and two-storey houses built during that time. Many of the area homes feature bay windows, stone chimneys, wrought iron railings and decorative front porches.
The Kingsway Village shopping district along Bloor Street West provides a thriving pedestrian-friendly corridor of high-end fashion boutiques, restaurants, specialty stores, markets, coffee shops and bakeries.
Sunnylea Park, Laura Hill Park and Spring Garden Park offer a miriad of outdoor activities for neighbourhood residents two tennis courts, playgrounds and sports fields. The Brentwood Public Library also provides year-round programs for children.
Access to local transportation is easy for residents with bus lines on Prince Edward Drive, Royal York Road and Islington Avenue providing connecting routes to subway stations aloing the Bloor-Danforth line. Motorists can get into the downtown core via Lake Shore Boulevard or the Gardiner Expressway in about fifteen minutes.
