    The beautiful Bedford Park or Lawrence Park as it is sometimes called, is a neighbourhood developed with the needs of the family in mind. Located conveniently close to the Yonge and Lawrence subway, the neighbourhood is rich in public, private and separate schools, parks, playgrounds and libraries.The area has an unconventional boundary to the north with both Brooke Avenue and Snowdon Avenue forming its northern border. Bedford Park then stretches south to Lawrence Avenue with Avenue Road creating its western border and Bayview Avenue on the east. Historically, Bedford Park originated as a popular farming community, hosting farmers travelling to and from the bustling Toronto markets. In 1890, when the Metropolitan Street Railway began to service the area, it developed into a thriving community.


    Most of the homes in the Bedford Park neighbourhood were built between 1890 and 1940 however there has been a lot of redevelopment in the area as many of these older homes have been replaced with new custom designs. The area offers a rich ‘neighbourhood’ feel, allowing area residents the luxury to stroll to the many coffee shops, restaurants and shops. Residents can also stroll through the area’s many parks. Wanless Park offers tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball diamond, playground and wading pool while Woburn parkette, situated just west of Yonge street, is popular amongst neighbourhood parents with toddlers and preschoolers. The George Locke Public Library at the south-east corner of Yonge and Lawrence, offers year round programs for adults, children, and preschoolers and sits across the street from the Yonge and Lawrence subway station.
