About Seaton Village:

Fondly nicknamed the West Annex, this beautiful neighbourhood lives up its quaint moniker. Popular with U of T professors, the arts-and-letters set, and professionals, Seaton Village is brimming with lively, growing families.

Classic Victorian housing and tree-lined streets deliver the same look as the Annex, but without the multi-million-dollar price tag. The newly redesigned Vermont Square Park, with a playground named after poet and area resident Dennis Lee, an off-leash area, three bocce courts, a wading pool and a children’s playground, is the perfect addition to this welcoming neighbourhood.

  • Residential development of the present day neighbourhood did not commence until around 1888, when Seaton Village was annexed by the City of Toronto.
  • Seaton was known as the “English Village” due to the English background of early residents.
