HISTORY OF SHERWOOD PARKThe Sherwood Park Area (which was within the town of North Toronto) was primarily an agricultural farming community that was incorporated in 1890 as a result of the amalgamation between Davisville Village, Eglinton Village, and Bedford Park Village. They began building houses in the 1890’s when the Metropolitan Street Railway made North Toronto the northernmost stop on its five cent line from downtown Toronto. By the early 1900’s North Toronto emerged as one of Toronto’s most popular commuter suburbs. It was annexed in 1912 and was completely developed by the 1940’s. The areas that we refer to as Allenby and Sherwood Park, both fall within the Toronto Mega City boundaries formed in 1998 and referred to as North Toronto.
