Wychwood Park


Formerly a gated artists colony, Wychwood Park, established in the late 19th century, showcases some of Toronto's most beautiful and fascinating heritage architecture. It's a great place for a stroll. Bear in mind that Wychwood is a residential community where people go about their daily lives, so please be respectful as you sightsee.
