In 1909, the Rosedale Golf Club moved to its present home at the top of Hoggs Hollow, east of Yonge Street. Three years later, Toronto businessmen Nicholas Garland and Robert Dack subdivided the lands south of the club property into house lots which came to be known as Teddington Park. By 1926, a Globe newspaper advertisement was touting Teddington Park as a hive of activity …” filling up with residential buildings of a fine class.”
Teddington Park is located east of Yonge Street, just south of the old city limits. It is serviced by the Lawrence and York Mills subway stations, although it is a somewhat shorter walk to the York Mills station. The neighbourhood is bordered by Glen Echo Road on the north, Golfdale Road on the south, and Riverview Drive to the east.
Homes in Teddington Park are typically set on 50’ x 125’ lots. Most are single family dwellings, but some duplexes and multiplexes have been built. Teddington Park consists of only four streets: Golfdale Road, Riverview Drive, Teddington Park Avenue and Glen Echo Road. The neighbourhood’s small size has guaranteed exclusivity, and only a handful of properties are listed each year. In 2015, the average price of a home in the neighbourhood was above $2,500,000, within a range of $1 million to $4.5 million. Houses on the east side of Riverview Drive are particularly prized, as they back onto the golf course and the ravine. Downsizers and empty nesters wishing to settle in a condominium nearby paid an average price of just under $1 million. Most houses were snapped up after 15 days or less on the market, while the condominiums took an average of 32 days to sell.
One of the neighbourhood’s first attractions was the Rosedale Golf Club, at 1901 Mt. Pleasant Road. The Club’s location has provides its members with the most accessible course in the City. It is in fact the only golf course in central Toronto south of the old city limits.
For tennis aficionados, the Valley Tennis Club is located at 3266 Yonge Street. The Granite Club, at 2350 Bayview Avenue, offers tennis and squash courts, two indoor pools, skating and curling rinks, and a winter golf dome. The Bedford Park Community Centre, at 81 Ranleigh Avenue, has a gym and an indoor pool.
Teddington Park’s residents enjoy a wide variety of shops lining both sides of Yonge Street to the south. The area’s small storefronts create an assortment of competing shops. Residents of the area will find most of what they are looking for within walking distance of home.
Location and history both contribute to Teddington Park’s ongoing status as one of Toronto’s best neighbourhoods.
