Caribou Park

The small community of Caribou Park — located east of Bathurst Street, west of Avenue Road and south of Lawrence Avenue West — is one of Toronto’s most affluent neighbourhoods with typical home prices coming in at over $1 million.

It was still farmland as late as the 1930s, when developers purchased and began constructing the neighbourhood’s brick two-storey and bungalow homes from the 1940s to the ’60s. Many of these homes are charmingly unique in appearance, in part owing to the fine touches residents have added over the years.

The area is almost entirely residential with most of the retail options found on Bathurst Street to the west. Other shops, bakeries, restaurants and services can be found on the boundary streets, which also all offer bus transit. Lawrence Avenue West subway station is a close walk away.

The area features several schools including public and private Catholic and Jewish schools and is very popular among parents.
