First settled by the Ashbridge family from Philadelphia who came to Canada in the late 1700’s, the areas’ properties became subdivided into lots of land for local parks such as Balmy Beach, Kew Gardens and Woodbine Park.
In the 1920’s, as the city expanded eastward, The Beach (also unofficially known as “The Beaches”) was sectioned off for permanent residential development and has since grown to be one of Toronto’s most popular and attractive neighbourhoods.
Queen Street remains the most commercial street in The Beach, with a wide variety of eclectic shops, bars, cafes and restaurants that are frequented by locals and tourists alike.
In addition to the excellent shopping and restaurant experience, a short walk south down any of the streets crossing Queen St., will take you to The Boardwalk, which is one of the featured attractions of The Beach. Torontonians and tourists frequent The Beach in the summer and winter to take a leisurely walk along The Boardwalk, just as if they were in a beach-side resort town.
Kew Gardens, the social hub of The Beach, hosts many annual events such as The Beaches Jazz Festival, Arts and Crafts Show and of course, The Beaches Christmas Tree and Menorah lighting festival.
The Beach also has a wide variety of architectural house styles situated on tree-lined streets, many of which consist of original framework built during the 20’s and 30’s, but renovated to the contemporary tastes of today. The Beach area continues to enjoy increasing property values and is an attractive community for singles, couples and families with children.
Transportation access is easy in The Beach – simply jump on the Queen St. streetcar and make your way into downtown Toronto in as little as 20 minutes!
Recreational activities are a stones throw from almost anywhere in The Beach, whether it is baseball diamonds, hockey rinks, tennis courts or just a run along the Boardwalk.
