Forest Hill Village

Forest Hill Village is a part of the former village of Forest Hill, now part of Toronto. The Village extends roughly from Eglinton Avenue in the north (the upper Village) to Heath Street in the south (the lower Village) along Spadina Road between Bathurst Street/Cedarvale Ravine (whichever is further east) and Avenue Road. Its original boundaries were Bathurst Street to the west, Upper Canada College to the east, Eglinton Avenue to the north, and Lonsdale Road and a portion of Montclair Avenue to the south (the original boundaries of school section 30). The designations upper and lower are based on height of land and not on positions on a map.

The lower Village is known for its upscale shopping and dining, although the actual mix of stores includes several modest enterprises. The lower Village has attracted extensive residential development (especially of apartments), both within the original boundaries of Forest Hill and in adjacent neighbourhoods to which developers have now extended the Village and Forest Hill names.
