FOREST HILL, ONE OF TORONTO’S WEALTHIEST NEIGHBOURHOODS, LIVES UP TO ITS NAME

Once-upon-a-time FOREST HILL was a separate village, just north of downtown TORONTO. Amalgamated into the city in 1967, the neighbourhood is heavily treed and its undulating topography includes several modest hills and a nearby ravine. The village centre is nothing special, although excellent coffee and good food is on offer, but the surrounding streets are lined with mature trees and stolid mansions.
