Swansea was incorporated as a village in 1926. The Swansea Village corporate seal reveals a great deal about the colourful history of this neighbourhood.
Swansea Village is the only Toronto neighbourhood that has its own community-run Town Hall. Swansea is also the only Toronto neighbourhood to have a lake, a river, and a pond as its natural boundaries. Swansea’s hilly terrain, winding roads, and many mature trees accentuate the storybook houses that line the residential streets of this neighbourhood.
A bus route serves Swansea on Windermere and Morningside Avenues. The Runnymede and Jane subway stations on the Bloor-Danforth subway line are within walking distance of many houses in this neighbourhood. Motorists enjoy the convenience of being located only minutes away from the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard.
