Newtonbrook takes pride in its geographical gifts. The neighbourhood maintains 20 parks and playgrounds, some with walking trails along Don River. The area along Newtonbrook Creek is known for beautiful ravine views. Sports facilities include an indoor ice arena, baseball fields, tennis courts and community centres. The 2000-seat Esther Shiner stadium is located on Bathurst Street.
The housing options in Newtonbrook hews to the traditional split-level or bungalow styles popular in the 1920s up to the 1960s when large-scale residential developments came to this former saw mill town. Newer homes are usually custom-built. More opulent condominium apartments and townhouses have sprung up near Steeles and Bayview Avenues. High-density housing in residential towers can be found along Bathurst Street.
Predictably, the area around Yonge Street is the shopping hub of this neighbourhood. Centrepoint Mall is the core of this shopping area. Dufferin Street is known for discount warehouses while Steeles Avenue is the place for premium retail stores.
Newtonbrook homes for sale are definitely worth a look because of the neighbourhood’s convenient location to Toronto’s downtown area.
