Alderwood was originally known as New Toronto Park. The area didn’t experience any major growth until after World War II. However, many industries moved into the area, specifically the area around Brown’s Line during the war. Many Eastern Europeans immigrated to the area after the end of the war.
Alderwood is a great community for families and for those who commute into Toronto’s downtown core for work. The neighbourhood includes a large multi use community centre called the Sir Adam Beck Centre which many residents enjoy. Over the years, the neighbourhood has seen many of it’s older homes being replaced with larger and more modern homes.
Most of Alderwood’s homes were built the 1920’s and 1950’s. The neighbourhood originally consisted of mostly bungalows and one and a half storey homes. Many of the original homes have been torn down and replaced with larger more modern and contemporary style homes.
Alderwood is a great community for those looking to make a move from condo living to living in a freehold home with a garden and additional space.
