Forest Hill, Ontario
Forest Hill is a neighbourhood and former village in Toronto, located north of downtown. The village was amalgamated into Toronto in 1967 and the area has retained its name as a neighbourhood. Along with Lawrence Park, Rosedale, The Bridle Path, and York Mills it is one of Toronto’s wealthiest neighbourhoods. Currently, for the purposes of social policy analysis & research, the city of Toronto’s Social Development & Administration division divides Forest Hill into two neighbourhoods: Forest Hill North and Forest Hill South.
The Upper Village is dominated by Tudor and Georgian styles, but the architectural styles range from French Colonial with terra cotta tiles to English country manors with sweeping lawns. Luxurious details such as sculpture gardens, porte-cochères, and imposing gated entrances are quite widespread. Forest Hill also contains a fair number of luxury condominium buildings located west of Spadina on Lonsdale Road.
Notable institutions in the Forest Hill neighbourhood include:
• Upper Canada College
• Bishop Strachan School
• Forest Hill Collegiate Institute
• Timothy Eaton Memorial Church
• St. Michael's College School
• Grace Church on-the-Hill
