Why you'd want to live in Leaside
There are few better places in Toronto to raise a family than Leaside Bennington. Local schools like Leaside High rank well; the kid-friendly Science Centre, Sky Zone and Evergreen Brick Works are minutes away; and a sprawling retail district offers all the unglamorous big-box stores—Sobeys, Best Buy, Home Depot, a sparkling new Costco—that parents rely on. The area has a high level of house ownership, and residents get an excellent return on investment, with seven per cent year-over-year house price increases. But it has its flaws: the subways are a trek and the dining options are few (though carnivores make pilgrimages to Adamson Barbecue).
