Etobicoke is in Toronto. Etobicoke (pronounced /ɛˈtoʊbɨkoʊ/) was once a city of its own, but it became a part of the city of Toronto in 1998, when the great amalgamation occurred. Most of this region's industry is located around Pearson International Airport, which is located in the northwest of Etobicoke. While most of this enormous chunk of land is single family-home suburbia, there are a few notable exception. The neighbourhood surrounding Islington subway station, at the intersection of Islington Avenue and Bloor Street has become a new transit-oriented centre, with high-rise condo projects and plenty of street-level restaurants and shops; the on-street shops and restaurants continue to line Bloor all the way to Prince Edward Drive. The most well-known and popular neighbourhood in Etobicoke is Long Branch, which extends along Lakeshore Boulevard from the Humber River to the border ith Mississauga. Due to its past as a separate city, this section of Toronto has clearly defined perimeters: the Humber River - which separates Etobicoke from Old Toronto - in the east, the border with Mississauga in the west, the border with York Region in the north and Lake Ontario in the south.

Get in

Etobicoke has some pocketed communities, such as the shops on Bloor Street West near the Royal York subway station. Abundant with restaurants such as the french Merlot, spanish Barcelona's and Italian cuisine it is rather nice to take a stroll before dinner and experience some smaller, community oriented shops.

The Kingway area has always been known for it's opulence. Large, older homes have a lot of character and full-grown trees that canape the roads in the area. They are particularly beautiful in the autumn season, for obvious reasons.

Surrounded by trails that connect Etobicoke's parks residents are often found jogging, bike riding or going for a stroll. The Terry Fox Run landmarks can be found throughout the trails.

The Etobicoke Creek runs from Lake Ontario to the south up past the Lester B. Pearson (Toronto) International Airport and is the Etobicoke (now Toronto) and Mississauga boarder. Along the creek you can find interesting places and walk/jog/cycle path that stretches from Neilson Park Community Centre to Centennial Park. In the centre of this path is the quiet residential community of Markland Wood [1] where you can stop and shop at Bruno's or have a snack or meal at the Markland Wood Pizza. The Millwood Park, located in the centre of Markland Wood has some of Etobicoke's oldest growth forest and an oak tree that dates back will over 300 years old.
