About Lytton Park
Lytton Park is an exclusive Toronto neighbourhood centred around a 1.7-hectare park…shockingly known as Lytton Park.! The park borders Avenue Road to the west, runs south of Glencairn Avenue, and features 3 outdoor tennis courts, lawn bowling, a children’s playground and a clubhouse. It is home base for the North Toronto Tennis Club and the North Toronto Lawn Bowling & Croquet Club. Besides being scenic, it serves as a social hub of activity for local residents in warmer months.
Lytton Park is known as a friendly, family-oriented, quiet and tree-lined neighbourhood. It’s comprised of mainly detached and semi-detached homes, plus a smattering of condos and apartments along Yonge and Avenue road. In large part, homes in this area are classic brick houses situated on generous plots of green space with front and backyards. It’s not uncommon to see neighbours sharing a glass of wine or hanging out over dinner in warmer months.
The community in Lytton Park is tight-knit and due to the proximity of residents to a handful of local schools, many children create lasting friendships as they grow up here. Schools that are within walking distance from Lytton Park include some of the best in the city: John Ross Robertson, St.Clement’s pre-school, St.Clement’s all-girls private school, Glenview middle school, Havergal all-girls private school and Lawrence Park high school.
