Lytton Park Neighbourhood
Lytton Park was originally known simply as Lot 3 Concession 1 West of Yonge Street, This was a 200 acre farm lot granted to John MacDougall a United Empire Loyalist. In 1828, the Snider family built the first house in the neighbourhood at 744 Duplex Avenue.

The original Regency style cottage was expanded over the years and is now Georgian in appearance. It is one of the oldest private residences in Toronto. Lytton Park’s rich history includes a castle and a horse racing track.

The castle known as Glen Castle – sometimes referred to as Ainsley Castle – once stood perched on the hill where Glen Castle Street is now situated. The racetrack was situated near Glengrove Avenue and Yonge Street. It began operations in 1887 and closed just two years later. In 1886 the Metropolitan Street Railway began a one horse carriage service to what was then the Town of North Toronto which included Lytton Park.
