The Kingsway, originally known as Kingsway Park, established in 1850, is a residential neighbourhood steeped in tradition. The King’s Mill Reserve, centred around the Old Mill, was the first part to be built on, with Lambton Mills, and the Thompson Estates also developing in the late 1800’s.
Prior to the 17th century, the area would have been inhabited by First Nations people including the Mississaugas, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. The name “Etobicoke” originates from “Adobigok” , the Mississauga First Nation’s word meaning “where the alders grow.”
In the 1900’s the Kingsway Garden Subdivision (the Kingsway), was developed by Robert Home Smith, according to the Garden City urban planning movement.
The Old Mill Bridge, featured in this design, where boaters and anglers enjoy the Humber River, is one of many greenspace examples in the Kingsway.
One could argue that the Kingsway, with its boutique shopping, stately homes, and plentiful greenspace remains true to the original Garden City vision of Sir Ebenezer Howard.
