Lawrence Park Real Estate & Neighbourhood History
The subdivision of Lawrence Park was created in 1907 and was developed by the Dovercourt Land Building and Saving Company. Prior to the Dovercourt Land Company acquiring the north parcel of Lawrence Park, it was owned by a man named John Lawrence, which the neighbourhood is named after.
Lawrence Park was created as a suburb for the wealthy under Wilfred Servington Dinnick’s direction. Dinnick was the president of the Dovercourt Land Company. The new neighbourhood was advertised as a location that was ‘four hundred feet above Lake Ontario’, and ‘far from the lake winds in the winter.’
Even with the large amount of attention that was brought to the new Lawrence Park neighbourhood, the development of the area was scattered. The building of the Lawrence Park subdivision was interrupted several times due to two world wars, a recession and a depression. The neighbourhood was finally completed in the 1950s.
