Wish to move to a quiet and affordable community in Toronto's west end?Alderwood is a well established neighbourhood located on the westerly edge of Toronto. Originally a farming community, many of the streets in Alderwood are named after the original farmers located here - including Brown, Evans, Lunness and Horner. Alderwood’s grid patterned streets are lined with bungalows and 1 ½ storey homes, primarily built post-war (late 1940’s -1950’s). They are attractively maintained with manicured lawns & most often feature a private drive and garage. Alderwood is bounded by the Etobicoke Creek to the west, the Gardiner Expressway to the north, Kipling Ave to the east and the CNR railway to the south. The south–easterly portion of the area experienced a rapid (light) industrialization in the 1930’s and today this portion of the area is still home to several major corporate employers.
The community is served by several schools. Most notably, The Sir Adam Beck Centre- a recreation facility built on the former Sir Adam Beck School Grounds features a primary school, combined with a public library, community room, daycare centre and a fitness rom. These facilities are connected to the updated Alderwood Pool. Alderwood Memorial Park located in the centre of this neighbourhood and is a wide open green space with a children’s playground. Connorvale Park features a baseball diamond. The community also enjoys access to the walking paths along Etobicoke Creek which connects Marie Curtis Park along the shores of Lake Ontario – and the Waterfront Trail to downtown Toronto.
Alderwoods main shopping district is along Browns Line and features neighbourhood green grocers, medical centre convenience stores & restaurants. Sherway Gardens Mall is a short drive north-west via Evans Ave.
Downtown Toronto is a 25 minute commute on the Gardiner Expressway via Browns Line. TTC buses connect to the Long Branch GO station and with the Kipling and Islington subway stations (Bloor- Danforth line).
