Forest Hill

Forest Hill is split in two: “upper” and “lower,” as determined by height of land. Otherwise, they’re two peas in a pod. Winding roads, gently sloping hills and peaceful parkettes set the backdrop for some of Toronto’s most stunning homes and landscaping. Upscale restaurants, bakeries and food shops abound, welcoming late-morning brunchers and afternoon boutique browsers. The 14.5-kilometre Belt Line is popular with fitness and nature buffs, while motorists catch the nearby Allen Expressway in and out of the city. With the relative affluence come two of Canada’s most revered private schools, Bishop Strachan (for girls) and Upper Canada College (for boys). To no surprise, this prestigious village-within-the-city is extremely popular with the city’s movers and shakers.
