Forest Hill Community Information 

The Forest Hill area of Toronto is composed of an upper and lower portion, known as Forest Hill North and Forest Hill South respectively. The entire community encompasses an L-shaped area extending roughly from Briar Hill Avenue in the north, down to St. Clair Avenue in the south, and Eglinton Avenue is considered the unambiguous dividing line between Forest Hill North and Forest Hill South. Browse Forest Hill homes for sale.

The western boundary of Forest Hill runs north along Bathurst Street, turning west on Eglinton Avenue (north of the Humewood-Cedarvale area), and north again around Allen Road.

The eastern boundary of Forest Hill runs north for a short distance along Spadina Road or Avenue Road (depending on who you ask), before turning east on Londsdale and then north again to follow Oriole Parkway. The border then makes its way north, with its course varying depending on who you ask, before joining up with Eglinton Avenue and turning west. The eastern boundary of Forest Hill then resumes its northward path somewhere around Castlewood Road or Latimer Avenue, terminating at Briar Hill Avenue. 

Also, make a note not to confuse Forest Hill in central Toronto with a community of the same name in London, Ontario.   

From roughly the centre of Forest Hill, the commute to downtown Toronto can take around 20 minutes, traffic permitting. Furthermore, Toronto's Midtown area lies only a few minutes east on Eglington Avenue. Other neighbouring communities include Humewood and Cedarvale (west), Casa Loma (south), and Lawrence (north).

Forest Hill has subway stops on St. Clair Avenue in the south and Eglinton Avenue in the north. These two stations connect on the same line, running north to south and connecting downtown Toronto with Vaughan.

Forest Hill Real Estate

Most of the real estate in Forest Hill consists of large, older single-family homes completed in a number of traditional European styles.

The architectural styles on display in Forest Hill include Tudor, Georgian, and various blends of French or English country home. As such, expect to see an abundance of dormer and bay windows, ornate masonry, and high-quality details and trim.

Being slightly older, homes in the area of Forest Hill enjoy larger yards and properties. Many of these homes have pools, secondary buildings, and carriage driveways. 

Homes in North Forest Hill were mainly completed in the 1940s and 1950s and occupy slightly smaller lots than their neighbours to the south. Also befitting an area of this vintage, mature trees abound along many narrow, grid-patterned streets. 

Forest Hill also includes some highly sought-after condos, located in buildings east of Bathurst Street in the north, west of Spadina Road in the south, and along Avenue Road near Deer Park. 

In sum, Forest Hill is home to some of Toronto's most prestigious homes and real estate and the area has long been known as a haven for celebrities and the city's wealthier classes. 

Forest Hill History

The area of Forest Hill was originally known as Spadina Heights, from the Ojibwe word "ishapadenah", meaning "hill" or "sudden elevation". The village was later incorporated in 1923 and named after the home of prominent community member John Wickson, built in 1860 near the intersection of Old Forest Hill Road and Eglington Avenue. 

John Wickson was born in England in 1817 and immigrated to Canada with his father in 1834. He took up his father's trade as a butcher but later expanded into real estate. At one point he owned a string of now protected buildings along Yonge Street. John Wickson died in 1900 and was buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetary.

Forest Hill was annexed by the City of Toronto in 1967, being one of the last remaining independent villages in the area. Development of the lower portion of Forest Hill was completed by the 1930s. The northern portion took a decade or two longer, as development there had to overtake existing industrial development. 

Forest Hill Amenities and Attractions

Forest Hill has a number of excellent amenities befitting a community of its caliber. For example, there are many small community parks distributed throughout Forest Hill, offering play spaces and quiet places to sit and enjoy the day. Larger parks include Memorial Park in the north, complete with a track, sports field, and the adjoining Larry Grossman Forest Hill Memorial Arena; and Forest Hill Road Park in the east, boasting lovely shade cover from a host of large trees and a playground.

Just beyond Forest Hill's Borders are Viewmont Park, Cedarvale Park, Sir Winston Churchill Park, and Oriole Park. 

Forest Hill is also home to prestigious public and private schools, like Forest Hill Public School, Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, Bishop Strachan School, Upper Canada College, and St. Michael's College.
