Allenby Neighborhood Map Robert Nardi

 

 

Allenby is a neighborhood in the Avenue rd & Eglinton area which is popular with families with small children. The neighborhood’s popularity can be linked to Allenby Public school, which boasts a strong academic repertoire with its French immersion school.

History
Allenby was first settled in the 1400's by the Huron Tribe which had a village here until sometime in the early 1700's.

This village is described as "a well organized and extensive community that had its centre in an artesian spring of pure water. The modern water tower rears its head on Roselawn Avenue, just to the west of Avenue Road. The great tribal huts were on the site of the present day Allenby Public School."

The Allenby school hill is not natural but was man-made, the result of the Huron's practice of burrowing food stocks underground.

The present day neighborhood was developed when Allenby Public School opened in 1927. The school was named after Lord Allenby, a British World War One hero.

Houses
Allenby's Tudor style houses were built in the 1930's and 1940's. They include a mix of detached two storey homes and bungalows. Allenby's lot sizes are above average, with 25 to 35 foot frontages being typical. All Allenby houses have either a mutual or private driveway.

Recreation
The ultra modern North Toronto Memorial Community Recreation Centre, on Eglinton Avenue west, has an indoor and outdoor pool, a gymnasium, a walking track, aerobic and weight rooms, and two artificial ice rinks that are used as tennis courts in the summertime. The Centre is located next to Eglinton Park which has a baseball diamond, sports field and a wading pool.

Allenby residents are also close to the Beltline trail, popular seven kilometer leisure and exercise path that winds through the central part of the city. There is local access to the Belt Line, south of Eglinton off Chaplin Avenue and at Oriole Parkway.

Regular bus service on Eglinton Avenue and on Avenue Road connects passengers to the Eglinton station on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line.
