Baby Point is one of the most in-demand communities in West Toronto, and it’s easy to see why. Between its natural beauty, impressive housing stock, and general family-friendly vibe, this suburban enclave is a true paradise. We’re such big fans of the neighbourhood that we’ve established our office here!
If you’re thinking of calling Baby Point home, here are five reasons we think you’ll love the area…
1) the peace and quiet
Driving through the stone gates that mark the entrance to Baby Point instantly makes us feel tranquil. The neighbourhood sits on a peninsula that provides stunning views of the water, and you’ll also find an abundance of green parkland all around. Not only that, but the community is small, and it’s laid out in such a way that residents rarely have to a deal with traffic or other noise pollution. In other words, this is a great place to live if you’re looking for rest and relaxation!
2) The gorgeous homes
Looking for a beautiful house to call home? What about some space where your family can spread out? If so, keep an eye out for real estate in Baby Point. Most of the homes here were built in the 1920s and 30s, and they’ve been lovingly maintained since then. Edwardian, Tudor, and Craftsman styles are very popular—and a drive around the neighbourhood reveals why. You’ll also notice that the lots tend to be spacious by Toronto standards, and some of them look out over the Humber River valley.
3) The local restaurants
Don’t get us wrong, Bloor West Village is a wonderful business district. We’re glad Baby Point residents have such easy access to its eateries, boutiques, and essential services. Having said that, they can also find some incredible eats even closer to home. Take Campo. This Jane Street favourite serves up truly inspired Mediterranean dishes—all with an inventive modern twist. And don’t get us started on the Annette location of Queen Margherita Pizza. When you’re in the mood for a savoury pie, this Italian hotspot should be at the top of your list!
4) Baby Point Garden Parkette
If you don’t live here, you probably don’t know about Baby Point Garden Parkette. This hidden gem, which sits at Jane and Metheun, is the ideal spot to sit and get some sun. Fans of design will admire the modern bench seating, concrete walkway, and ornate laser-cut steel. But everyone can appreciate the parkette’s cozy-yet-urban feel—and having a place to sit outside and enjoy a tea or coffee. The streetscape even won an award from TABIA (the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas).
5) Etienne Brule Park is nearby
Etienne Brule Park is the perfect place for nature lovers. Stretched out along the Humber River, this local green space is home to some truly scenic trails and picnic spots. If you’re the curious type, you’ll enjoy the interpretive signage, which provides historical info about the area—including its past use as a trade route among Indigenous peoples. It’s also known as a great place to fish! The best part? Etienne Brule Park just a two-minute drive from Baby Point. When the weather’s nice, it’s an easy walk.
There are so many great things about Baby Point that we couldn’t possibly fit them all in one list. Are you ready to learn more about what living in the area is really like?
