Sherwood Park, with its long winding paths for running and biking, wading pools, a big playground, and other amenities, is just one major street away. There is also a dog off-leash section. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
There’s no question that Yonge and Eglinton is a fantastic place to live, and an even better place for investment!

The neighbourhood has a distinctly urban vibe, and locals are lucky to be close to everything they need.
