A compact neighborhood, South Hill lies surrounded by some of Toronto’s most exclusive and sought-after districts.
South Hill’s major thoroughfares are St. Clair Avenue West and Avenue Road. Both are lined with luxury apartment buildings, while much of the rest of the neighborhood is composed of elegant single-family homes. Sir Winston Churchill Park serves as South Hill’s primary recreational space, with several athletic fields catering to a variety of sports and other activities. Running diagonally to the south is Nordheimer Ravine, which is home to a extensive network of walking trails and is a popular place to view the fall foliage.
