Allenby Junior Public School is a well-regarded go-to school in the area. Eglinton Junior Public School was rebuilt more recently than most schools in Toronto, and therefore is a little more modern. Numerous public high schools dot the neighbourhood, including North Toronto Collegiate Institute (one of the most well-regarded schools in Toronto), Northern Secondary, and Forest Hill Collegiate Institute. You’ll also find several private schools as well as Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School and St. Monica’s Catholic Elementary School.
Parks & Recreation
The nearby Eglinton Park is one of the best parks in Toronto, with baseball diamonds, soccer fields, an indoor hockey rink, outdoor hockey rink, tennis courts, water play, play structures, and picnic areas. It’s also beside a great community centre. Oriole Park is also in the neighbourhood, as well as the Belt Line Railway trail for biking and walking. For indoor fun, there’s the North Toronto Arena, which is perfect for football, soccer, baseball, frisbee, dog walking, and other activities.
Located on the Yonge Subway Line, the neighbourhood offers easy access to transit via Eglinton Station. The development of the Eglinton Crosstown will soon also link Yonge & Eglinton to the rest of the city from east to west.
Yonge & Eglinton has a bit of everything for buyers and renters, including high- and low-rise condos, apartments, and houses. In recent years, its north-central location has spawned development, concentrated around Eglinton Station, and has resulted in a mixed-used neighbourhood of detached houses, townhomes, and high-rise buildings.
