“West of the Humber River: The Kingsway”

Location is everything…right? Come on an adventure with us as we bike through different neighbourhoods in south Etobicoke to show you just how close and diverse your backyard can be!

In our first episode of ‘Your Backyard In Minutes’, we take you on a quick bike ride through the charming Kingsway area, located just west of the Humber River along Bloor Street West.

We start our route at the site of the future home of Backyard Condos at the corner of Berry Road and Stephen Drive in the quaint Sunnylea neighbourhood.

The Kingsway offers an array of specialty services, restaurants, bakeries and boutique shops. The best part? It’s only a 13 minute bike ride from Backyard Neighbourhood Condos. Here’s where we stopped along our route:

Toronto Humber Yacht Club
Established in 1956, Toronto Humber Yacht Club is an oasis for boaters and paddlers. In addition to gas and docks for motor and paddle craft, the cozy Club House features a full bar and pool table loft.

Humber River Recreation Trail
This trail is a route along the Discovery Walks, a program of self guided walks that link city ravines, parks gardens, beaches and neighbourhoods.

Old Mill Subway Station
The Old Mill Subway Station is located at 2672 Bloor Street West at Old Mill Terrace and Humber Boulevard.

Oleander Floral Design
Orleander is typical of the upscale boutiques, shops and cafes that this area has to offer.

Your special iced coconut milk mocha macchiato is always right around the corner.

Need a bottle of vino for those drop-in guests? Entertaining is a breeze with LCBO just up the street.

Momiji Sushi
Momiji offers quality Japanese cuisine in an atmosphere that’s great for either casual or formal dining.

Hot Oven Bakery
Every neighbourhood needs a bakery. Luckily, ours has one of the best. Hot Oven Bakery offers freshly baked breads, baguettes, pastries, cookies and cakes.

The Kingsway Variety
A convenient corner store with character. Grab Sunday’s newspaper, fresh cut flowers, or any other necessity you might need.
