Lawrence Park (Lawrence Park North, Lawrence Park South, Manor)
As one of Canada’s wealthiest, most exclusive neighbourhoods, Lawrence Park is a peaceful, idyllic setting built around Mount Pleasant Road. Winding roads and gently rolling hills, along with many parks and ravines, greet every turn, while whimsical properties come in every variety: from medium-sized houses on deep lots to mansions in the styles of English Cottage, Tudor Revival, Georgian and Colonial. Appeasing residents’ finer tastes are leading schools (Crescent School and the Toronto French School), prestigious recreational facilities (the Granite Club and the Rosedale Golf Club), and a number of high-profile shops and gourmet restaurants, all dotting the periphery—and keeping traffic through the residential streets to a minimum. First impressions aside, Lawrence Park has a reputation for being the most family friendly of the city’s super-affluent neighbourhoods.
