Located in the south west of Toronto, New Toronto resides alongside Lake Ontario. It was established in 1890 and was designed and planned as an industrial suburb by a group of industrialists. New Toronto’s rapid growth has led to its incorporation as a town in the 1920’s.
There are a number of waterfront parks and one of which is Colonel Samuel Smith Park. Along with this, New Toronto also boasts an innovative outdoor swimming pool, a huge baseball diamond, two tennis courts as well as a children’s playground.
It also has a “Lakeshore Village” shopping district which is situated alongside Lakeshore Boulevard West.
