It is not hard to imagine yourself as a resident of Swansea.
Swansea’s hilly terrain, winding roads, beautiful homes, and generously tree-lined streets make it a storybook area to live in. Many of its higher-end homes line the Western edge of High Park’s Grenadier Pond, while other (pricier) residences sit in the Brule Gardens enclave, in the north-west pocket of Swansea. These homes are easy to spot on a walk through High Park, as they often stand with an almost royal presence on the top of the hillside, or flank picturesque ponds and feature the docks of their owners. Not a bad place to rest your head, or have a drink, after a long day at the office…
Swansea is unique in that it is the only neighbourhood in Toronto that has its very own town hall; the hall plays host to local meetings, antique festivals and craft sales. It is also home of the Swansea Memorial Public Library – the smallest branch of the Toronto Public Library system. How cool is that!?
Lucky “Swaninians” (No!? Okay, we tried) have access to not one park, but well…so many more: South Kingsway Parkette, Ormskirk Park, Sir Casimir Gzowski Park, South Humber Park, Etienne Brule Park, Magwood Park and of course legendary High Park. Residents also have access to not 1, not 2, not even 3, schools but…so many more: Swansea School, Runnymede Jr. & Sr.School, Park Lawn Jr. & Md. School, Humbercrest Public School, Humberside Collegiate Institute, Runnymede Collegiate Institute, and Etobicoke School of the Arts. To add to the long list of bonuses that comes with living in this (gorgeous) pocket of the city ‘Swansea locals’ are also conveniently close to Bloor West Village shopping and all major bus routes.
No, it’s not hard to imagine yourself as a resident of Swansea at all…
