This is one of Etobicoke's most lovely areas, with wide lots, tree lined streets and a true neighbourhood feel. The community is the epitome of classic suburban lifestyle, close to parks, open spaces, schools and shopping. The lots in Princess Gardens are 80-90 feet wide, with a mixture of ranch style bungalows, larger re-builds, back and side splits, two storey, and Georgian Revival family homes. There are many custom-built new homes now being built in these neighbourhoods. If you're intrested in a ravine lot, along Ravenscrest Drive lots offer great privacy and panoramic vistas of the Ravenscrest Park.
The Glen Agar community is a very family orientated area. Here you'll find narrower frontages (40-50 feet) and slightly smaller homes, which makes them more affordable for younger families.
There are several parks in the area or nearby. Glen Agar Park, Ravencrest Park, Lloyd Manor Park, and the larger, West Deane Park. Nearby is the John G. Althouse Community School, the main recreational facility. The school offers arts, music and sports programs for all ages. The school also hosts a great spring flea market and summer camp. Tennis courts, sports fields and baseball diamonds are available for public use at the John G. Althouse School and Princess Anne Park. Lloyd Manor Park is a wide open green space where neighbours gather to play touch football games.
West Deane Park is a quiet neighbourhood with a country feel because the Mimico Creek Valley cuts through its centre. The valley is home to a variety of wildlife and many types of birds. Although the majority of houses in Deanewood were built in the 1960s, there are some newer row-houses, multi-plex homes and townhome complexes on the periphery. The neighbourhood was built by a racehorse owner, Percy Law. You can still see his Kentucky style house at 59 Beaverbend Road.
