Summerhill Neighbourhood
Summerhill was named after the " Summer hill " house built in the mid 1800's. Most of the neighbourhood was a part of the Thompson Estate that was home to the Summerhill Spring Park . This was an amusement park with rides, games and a swimming pool. The property that stretched from Yonge Street to Mt Pleasant Road  and was later subdivided by his heirs in the 1860's. In the 1880's the North Toronto Railway reached Summerhill on Yonge Street and the neighbourhood quickly grew. The train station defined the development of the surrounding area including the Summerhill neighbourhood. The workers from the railroad needed housing, and this is evident in the tall charming attached and semi detached row houses found on many Summerhill Streets . This Summerhill Station became the main train station for the Canadian Pacific Railway ( CP Railway) in the early 1900's , around 1920's. It was later closed, and now the old railway station has been revitalized as the neighbourhood LCBO for the area of Summerhill and Rosedale. The boundaries for Summerhill stretch to the north a couple of blocks south of St. Clair, Avenue Road in the west, Yonge Street and Mount Pleasant to the east and Davenport Road and the railway in the south. 
Like Rosedale Summerhill boasts beautiful tree lined and many winding streets. You will find an abundance of Parkland that makes the neighbourhood one of Toronto's most preferred neighbourhoods. Conveniently located along Toronto's main street the Yonge Corridor Summerhill is just steps to the gateway of the Downtown. Transportation is provided by easy acces to the business and entertainment districts with The Summerhill Subway station .
