Rockcliffe–Smythe is a neighbourhood in Toronto. It was part of the former City of York before the amalgamation of Toronto in 1998. The area is predominately residential in nature, mostly made up of single-family detached homes. There are apartment buildings along Jane Street, Scarlett Road, and Humber Boulevard. Rockcliffe–Smythe is known for having large amounts of green space including the centrally located Smythe Park. The entire western boundary is green space which includes Lambton Park and Scarlett Woods golf courses.
BlogTO has identified Rockcliffe–Smythe as one of the top 5 Toronto neighbourhoods on the rise in 2017. In December 2016, Airbnb listed it sixth in its top 17 neighbourhoods to visit in 2017, based on a 497 per cent increase in bookings in 2016. In April, 2015, Toronto Life listed Rockcliffe–Smythe as one of the top three neighbourhoods in Toronto for first time home buyers. “In the last 10 years there have been significant changes.” New retail development,such as the Stockyards outdoor mall at the neighbourhood’s southeastern corner, has revived some areas of empty land, and the Junction’s hot retail strip is just a short walk south.
The TDSB operates multiple elementary and secondary schools in the area.
TTC bus lines connect the neighbourhood to the bloor-danforth subway line. The main bus routes include the route 35 along Jane Street to Jane subway station, route 71 and 79 Scarlett Road along Runnymede Road, and the Route 89 Weston bus line that runs along Weston Road to Keele subway station. Lastly, the 161 Rogers Road loops within the neighbourhood and goes to the east, meeting the subway at Ossington subway station.
New light rail transit routes are planned for both Jane and Eglinton. The area will also be within reach of the Mount Dennis and Smart Track subway line at Weston and Eglinton. The subway line will connect to the Eglinton-Crosstown Line at Mount Dennis where there will be transportation along Eglinton to Pearson International Airport and south to Union Station.
Rockcliffe–Smythe was mostly farm land during the 1800s. One of the first large-scale developments in the area was the opening of the Smythe gravel pit in the 1920s, by Conn Smythe. After World War II the gravel pit was used up. This led to the residential development of the surrounding area. Smythe made homes available to returning servicemen and families, losing money on each. The neighbourhood has retained the Smythe name ever since. Smythe Park exists today on the site of the pit and is the site of the Smythe Park Recreation and Community Centre.
