Welcome to Banbury-Don Mills
Named the second-best neighbourhood in the entire city by Toronto Life magazine in 2013, Banbury Don Mills was developed between two rivers: Wilket Creek and the Don River form its western and eastern boundaries. This modern, affluent community stretches from York Mills in the north to Eglinton in the south.
What it's like
There’s an interesting inconsistency to Banbury Don Mills, in that it’s actually not particularly expensive by Toronto housing standards – coming in at slightly below the average city-wide home price. These savings seems to translate directly into disposable income for residents, who are more than happy to spend $4 for a single scoop of ice cream.
This is a truly diverse Toronto neighbourhood, with many first and second generation Canadians. The population’s not only ethnically diverse: with just over 23% of its residents in the 65+ category, there are more seniors here than a lot of other Toronto neighbourhoods. However, the largest population growth category is in the 0-14 range.
In addition to 13 private schools, Banbury Don Mills has several public schools. Secondary students can attend York Mills and Don Mills Collegiates. The Toronto Public Library has a large branch adjacent to the Shops at Don Mills. Sunnybrook and North York General hospitals are both close by.
