In the last five years Summerhill has become an in demand area for empty nesters looking to move further downtown. It is conveniently located along the Yonge Street corridor, providing residents with easy access to Toronto’s finest shops and restaurants.
Summerhill’s original housing stock consists of semi-detached and detached Victorian houses and detached Edwardian style houses, built between 1880 and 1915. Summerhill also has a large number of modern townhouses and a handful of low-rise luxury condominium apartment buildings.
The Rosehill Reservoir Park is located east of Yonge Street, with access from Summerhill Gardens. The lower portion of this park features a foot path that is used by walkers, joggers, and cyclists. The north-east corner of this path leads to the David A. Balfour Park, a nature trail that winds through the Vale of Avoca Ravine. The upper portion of the Rosehill Reservoir Park includes a children’s playground, wading pool, waterfall, and reflecting pools.
