About Woodbine Corridor
The Woodbine Corridor is a neighbourhood in Ward 32, located north of The Beaches and between Leslieville and the Danforth. The east end neighbourhood is marked by Milverton Boulevard to the north, Woodbine Avenue to the east, Kingston Road/Queen Street East to the south and Coxwell Avenue to the West. Development of this neighbourhood was slowed years ago, in comparison to other east end hoods. In the 40s-60s, the city planned to extend the Gardiner for a series of expressways, intended to handle growth in the suburbs of Toronto. Citizens opposed the extension due to the demolition of homes, air pollution, noise and the high cost of construction.
Woodbine Corridor is a family-friendly and pet-friendly community filled with 8 lush parks, ravines, and green spaces. There are fantastic recreational centres for children in the neighbourhood. Daycare options, 5 playgrounds, 2 dog parks, 15 schools (10 public, 5 catholic). Steps away to The Danforth, where you’ll find local restaurants, shops and more. Commuting via TTC is easy and accessible; Woodbine and Coxwell subway stations are near and streetcars run on Gerrard Street East. For drivers, the neighbourhood is just a 10-minute drive away from Lakeshore Boulevard.
