Long Branch

Long Branch is a well-established neighbourhood located along the Toronto waterfront at the extreme southwest part of the city. This neighbourhood is in transition, with many new home developments being built along Lakeshore Boulevard.

About Long Branch

Long Branch was first settled in 1797 by Colonel Samuel Smith, a loyalist officer with the Queen’s Rangers. Smith’s five hundred acre tract of land spanned the entire present-day neighbourhood.

Smith, who served two terms as an administrator of Upper Canada, built a modest Regency-style cottage at the southeast corner of 41st Street and Lakeshore Boulevard, where Parkview Public School is situated today.

Long Branch has its own Go Transit station located at the west end of this neighbourhood on the north side of Lakeshore Boulevard. Bus service at this station links passengers to Union Station and the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line.

Motorists can access downtown Toronto’s entertainment and financial districts in approximately fifteen minutes via Lakeshore Boulevard. Commuters also enjoy quick access to the Queen Elizabeth Way and Highway 427 on-ramps at Browns Line north of Lake Shore Boulevard.
