|(Beverley Hills ???)|
Highway 401 runs through the centre of this neighbourhood.
John Armour settled here in the 1830's and the neighbourhood is named after him.
The Armour Heights Community Centre sits upon the site of the original Armour homestead.
Robins original vision for Armour Heights was as a high-class address with its own bridle path and polo field.
Yonge Boulevard is what remains of the bridle path. The polo field was never realized.
Colonel Robins put his subdivision on hold as the World War I began. He then donated land in Armour Heights to the air force as a training school for Canadian and American pilots.
The new owners attempted to change the name of this subdivision to Beverley Hills however the original Armour Heights name has prevailed.
- The Armour Heights Community Centre is well known for its excellent selection of children's programs. The Armour Heights public library is located within the community centre.
- Armour Heights School
- Don Valley Golf Course
- Earl Bales Park
There aren't many sidewalks in this enclave and some visitors from the rest of Toronto say this creates feeling of being in the country.
