Bayview Village is bounded by Bayview Avenue to the west, Highway 401 to the south, Leslie Street to the east and Finch Avenue East to the north. The neighbourhood has been described as “contemporary living in the countryside, at the doorstep of the urban concentration of Metropolitan Toronto”, with its design and layout very similar to that of the East Don Valley Parklands.
Almost a quarter of Bayview Village is green, with winding streets and cul-de-sacs flourishing with mature birch, willow, cedar, pine, spruce and maple trees. Bayview Village is also home to a popular upscale shopping centre – Bayview Village Shopping Centre, which is centred on the northeast corner of Bayview and Sheppard Avenues.
Homes within Bayview Village range from raised and executive range style bungalows, Georgian Revival-styled homes and split-level houses; many of which have undergone transformation and landscaping in order to fit into the park-like neighbourhood. High rise condominiums are also in development along Sheppard Avenue.
