Wanless Park is a very popular neighbourhood for families with young children, couples and retirees. The main attraction is Wanless Park, an island of greenspace right in the centre of the neighbourhood. It features five public tennis courts, a large play structure, basketball court, baseball diamond and multiple soccer fields.
The neighbourhood has a unique mix of oversized ravine properties, ranch style bungalows, and detached brick homes on a variety of lot sizes. The family friendly shops and restaurants in the Yonge & Lawrence area are well patronized by the neighbourhood. This shopping district includes fashion stores, children’s stores, gift shops, casual dining, plus the ever popular coffee shops.
Some of the residents belong to the Granite Club or Glendon Athletic Club which both have an abundance of sports and recreational activities and are conveniently located at Bayview & Lawrence.
