What It's Like
There’s an interesting inconsistency to Banbury Don Mills, in that it’s actually not particularly expensive by Toronto housing standards – coming in at slightly below the average city-wide home price. These savings seems to translate directly into disposable income for residents, who are more than happy to spend $4 for a single scoop of ice cream.
This is a truly diverse Toronto neighbourhood, with many first and second generation Canadians. The population’s not only ethnically diverse: with just over 23% of its residents in the 65+ category, there are more seniors here than a lot of other Toronto neighbourhoods. However, the largest population growth category is in the 0-14 range.
In addition to 13 private schools, Banbury Don Mills has several public schools. Secondary students can attend York Mills and Don Mills Collegiates. The Toronto Public Library has a large branch adjacent to the Shops at Don Mills. Sunnybrook and North York General hospitals are both close by.
