 Sherwood Park: A Quiet Oasis in the Heart of Toronto

Located in north Toronto, the Sherwood Park neighbourhood offers peaceful, tranquil urban living. Often classified as part of the Mount Pleasant East or Lawrence Park South communities, Sherwood Park’s approximate boundaries are as follows:

  • Northern boundary: Alexander Muir Road
  • Southern boundary: Sherwood Road
  • Eastern boundary: Bayview Avenue
  • Western boundary: Yonge Street

Adjacent neighbourhoods include the exclusive enclaves of Leaside, Lytton Park and Lawrence Park. Home values in Sherwood Park are comparable to what you would find in these areas, with excellent potential to generate an above-average return on investment.

Sherwood Park itself is one of the most attractive features of the area. Widely considered to be one of the best and most picturesque parks in Toronto, Sherwood Park has an extensive network of hiking, running, and cycling trails, as well as a fenced 0ff-leash area for dogs. Children will love the oversized playground and wading pools, which operate throughout the summer. Picnic tables are also located throughout the beautifully landscaped outdoor space. Parking is free and ample and easy to find near the park’s main entrance.

Though North Toronto’s neighbourhoods are often grouped under the “midtown” umbrella, Sherwood Park has a distinctive character that defies easy categorization. Its homes have timeless beauty, with many fine examples of Tudor Revival, Georgian, Colonial, and English Cottage architecture. Most of the homes in the area were built during the first half of the 20th century, but in recent years, the area has seen an increasing amount of new development. Many of the newer buildings were designed to seamlessly match the neighbourhood’s historic appeal.

Other attractive features of the neighbourhood include:

Shopping and Dining

Like practically every neighbourhood in Toronto, Sherwood Park is home to a multitude of enticing eateries and ethnic cuisines. As an added bonus, it is within walking distance of the Yonge and Eglinton shopping district, which features the Canada Square retail and an entertainment complex, in addition to a broad selection of specialty boutiques and professional services.

Transportation Links

Located about halfway between Highway 401 and the Don Valley Parkway, Sherwood Park is easily accessible and convenient to practically any destination in the GTA. The Eglinton and Lawrence TTC subway stations are close by, and the area’s major arterial roads are well-served by 24-hour public transportation.

Walkability

Sherwood Park posts excellent walkability scores, giving you added reason to get outside and enjoy its distinctive charm and placid appeal.

Sherwood Park compares favourably to Toronto’s wealthiest and most exclusive areas, with healthy property appreciation rates and better affordability. If you value the convenience of urban living but want a quiet home with a community feel, Sherwood Park is definitely a neighbourhood you should consider!

    Another Leaside Home Sale by Top Broker Jethro Seymour
    Jethro is reliable, trustworthy, and set very realistic boundaries for us

    “We had received Jethro’s notepads and newsletters for quite some time. Friends in north Leaside had used him to sell their house, so we decided to give him a call when we decided to sell. We contacted two other agents, but once we met Jethro, we knew he was the right person for us.

    We had lived in our Leaside home for 29 years, so we were out of touch with the selling process. Jethro impressed us from the get-go. He was thorough and outstanding with digital marketing, even our friends..."
