Flemingdon Park Map

 

Overview

Flemingdon Park is a multicultural neighbourhood that has traditionally served as the first home for many new Canadians seeking affordable housing in the City of Toronto. A recent Flemingdon Park Public Library study places the total population of this neighbourhood at approximately twenty thousand people with over eighty different languages being spoken within the community.

Flemingdon Park residents have their own community information centre and health centre, a non-profit legal services clinic and a number of support programs for children, women, and families.

 

History

The Flemingdon Park neighbourhood is built on the former farm of R.J. Fleming after whom this neighbourhood is named. "Don" makes reference to the Don River which forms the eastern boundary of Flemingdon Park.

Flemingdon Park was first proposed to North York (now Toronto) City Councillors in 1958. It was touted as Canada's first completely planned "apartment city", and was based on similar developments already built in Europe and Scandinavia.

The initial response to Flemingdon Park was one of apprehension and concern. North York residents and politicians alike were concerned about the high density of the development. There were also questions about how city services would be provided and who would pay for them. Five North York councillors went so far as to fly to "apartment city" projects in England, Sweeden, and Copenhagen in order to view first hand this novel approach to neighbourhood building.

In 1959, after much debate the Flemingdon Park development was approved by city council. There were some obstacles along the way but Flemingdon Park was finally completed in the early 1970's.

The Flemingdon Community Centre at 150 Grenoble Drive features the only municipally funded indoor children's playground in Canada.
