Forest Hill is one of Toronto's most prestigious districts, rivalled only by the elegant neighbourhood of Rosedale. The pride of Forest Hill is its two private schools: Upper Canada College for boys, and Bishop Strachan School for girls. Both are noted as the best the country has to offer. Forest Hill extends from St. Clair Avenue West in the south to Briar Hill Avenue in the north. Its western border is formed by Bathurst Street with Oriole Parkway/Avenue Road marking its eastern border. Forest Hill was incorporated as a village in 1923 and was named after the summer residence of John Wickson, whose 1860 home was situated at the junction of Eglinton Avenue and Old Forest Hill Road. Forest Hill had been known previously as ‘Spadina Heights’ taken from the First Nations word ‘Ishapadenah,’ which means a hill or sudden rise in land. The Lower Forest Hill area development was completed by the 1930’s.
Building codes and bylaws, dating all the way back to the 1920’s and 1930’s, dictated that all Lower Forest Hill neighbourhood homes be professionally designed by an architect. Each property owner was then required to plant a tree in front of his home. The resulting majesty of glorious homes and green canopies make Forest Hill the much sought-after neighbourhood it is today. The Upper Forest Hill village homes were built mostly during the 1940's and 1950's in a much more modest style. Lot sizes however are comparable between both districts.
Today, a number of luxury condominiums and apartment buildings line Lonsdale Road and Heath Street West. The Forest Hill shopping district’s boutiques and shops cater to the specific needs of the area’s affluent residents and hosts a large variety of stores and many fine restaurants. For fitness and nature enthusiasts, the Belt Line nature trail offers residents a spectacular fourteen and one-half kilometre pathway that meanders through Forest Hill and down into Rosedale. Forest Hill's Public Library has a myriad of programs for adults, children, and preschoolers.
Transportation around the city is provided not only for cars by the major streets of its boundaries, such as Bathurst, Spadina, Eglinton and St. Clair, but also the Allen Expressway. The St. Clair streetcar, along with the Eglinton buses and Spadina subway provide public transit within minutes of most locations within the neighbourhood.
