About the Neighbourhood and Lifestyle
Lawrence Park is an established Toronto neighbourhood that is known for being a family-oriented community with beautiful homes, tree-lined streets, parks at every turn and a prime location close to the subway and 401.
Walk to the subway and head downtown to the action. Walk up to the restaurants and shops along Lawrence. Head to the library or pick up some groceries at the Metro.
While there are several qualities that make Lawrence Park an excellent place to live, what makes it so unique in day-to-day life is its tight-knit community. This is an area where neighbours are on a first name basis.
Once ranked the wealthiest neighbourhood in all of Canada (in 2011), Lawrence Park residents are generally well-heeled professionals, single families and the socialites of Toronto. It’s not hard to see why people have been so willing to invest and settle down in the Lawrence Park area, as it consistently maintains its garden suburb qualities that set it apart from many Toronto neighbourhoods.
