    Lytton Park originally started out as a rural suburb of Toronto, part of North Toronto. In 1886, the Metropolitan Street Railway (Toronto) decided to service this small area. Upon realizing that the land value in this region would go up when the railway was installed, the Railway company purchased a huge amount of farmland near their railway station on Glengrove Avenue. Two years later, the residential `boom` of this neighbourhood started. In 1912, the district was annexed into the City of Toronto. From then on, this area morphed into what it is today, with its many schools, parks, and shops.

    Architecture

    Lytton Park predominantly features Georgian and Tudor Style homes. Many of these houses were built from 1890 to 1930. Houses in Lytton Park are situated on large lots with lush, manicured gardens. There is an abundance of mature trees that line the streets providing a shady "canopy" in the summer and creating a picturesque snowy effect in the winter. Recently, many houses in Lytton Park have become subject to extensive renovations or have been totally rebuilt, transforming the neighborhood architecture.

    Transportation

    Most Lytton Park residents are within walking distance of bus routes that run along Yonge Street and Avenue Road (142 Downtown/Avenue Road Express; 61 Avenue Road North). The Lawrence and Eglinton subway stations, part of the Yonge-University-Spadina line, are also within walking distance from most parts of the neighbourhood.

    Highway 401 is within a five- to ten-minute drive from Lytton Park, accessible via Yonge Street and Avenue Road. As well, the Financial District is within a fifteen-minute drive from the neighbourhood.
