The historic Town of New Toronto is a neighbourhood in the south-west end of Toronto. In 1967, New Toronto was amalgamated with the former Township of Etobicoke, however it never lost its sense of identity as a working class town. Now, in the 1990's, the local industry is being replaced with new home developments which are attracting more professional people to this neighbourhood.
New Toronto boasts of waterfront parks. Colonel Samuel Smith Park includes the first Wetlands-Wildlife Restoration trail on the Great Lakes. This wetland habitat is home to a large variety of fish and birds, as well as frogs, garter snakes, painted turtles and a vast array of wildflowers.
Smaller waterfront parks, east of Colonel Samuel Smith Park, include Cliff Lumsden Park, Prince of Wales Park and Rotary Peace Park. Adjacent to this park, overlooking Lake Ontario, is the New Toronto Lawn Bowling Club. The Lakeshore Yacht Club is also based in this park.
The Lakeshore Campus of Humber College is located on the former grounds of the Mimico Lunatic Asylum (later the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital), at the foot of Kipling Avenue.
New Toronto's high school, now called Lakeshore Collegiate Institute, was originally built and operated as New Toronto Secondary School with first classes beginning in 1950.
New Toronto's small frame and brick bungalows and modest two storey houses were built largely between the 1910's and the 1950's. Larger single family homes are located closer to the lake, south of Lake Shore Boulevard.
A fairly recent addition to this neighbourhood is the Lakeshore Village subsidized housing development situated between tenth and thirteenth Avenues north of Lakeshore Blvd. This housing complex features an artists co-op, which accounts for its funky appearance. New home buyers will want to keep an eye on the area north of Birmingham Road, between Islington and Kipling Avenues, for upcoming new home developments.
The "Lakeshore Village" shopping district, located along Lakeshore Boulevard West, is a busy retail corridor that features fast food and family-style restaurants, and a wide mix of stores including food markets, bakeries, delis, coffee shops, bargain stores, drug stores, and convenience stores.
