Willowdale, which developed from three postal villages, Newtonbrook, Willowdale and Lansing, is a postal village within the Township of North York now. The neighborhood consists of single-family homes, condominium townhouses and high-rise condominium towers.
Postal Code: M2N
The area was settled in the late 1700s by Jacob Cummer, a mill and tin shop owner, self-trained veterinarian and doctor. His property was near the banks of the Don River. Initially, his neighbors called the area Cummer´s Settlement and today, Cummer Avenue bears his last name.
Another distinguished community leader was David Gibson, who helped create the Willow Dale post office in the mid 19th century. His home, The Gibson House, built in 1851 in the Georgian Rival style, is now a historic museum at 5172 on Yonge Street
Homes in the area range from modest one-and-a-half-story dwellings, built from 1910 to 1950, to two-story luxury homes constructed after the 1990s. It is in this neighborhood that the term “monster homes” was first applied by Torontonians.
The neighborhood is home to a most diverse immigrant community which comprises about 66 percent of the residents including Chinese, Koreans, and Iranians. The area also has two public school boards that administer several elementary and middle schools. The French-first language public secular school board, Conseil Scolaire Viamonde, offers schooling to Willowdale residents. However, they do not operate a school in the neighborhood.
Here, residents have access to several parks including Bathurst Park, Edithvale Park, Finch Avenue Hydro Corridor, and Sheppard East Park. The City of Toronto also manages a branch of the city´s public library in the zone, the North York Central Library on Yonge Street.
