Lorne Park is bordered by Lake Ontario on the south, Lakeshore Road on the north, Jack Darling Park on the west and Richard’s Memorial Park on the East. The neighbourhood originated as a resort community in the late 1800's around what is now the Lorne Park Estates at the foot of Lorne Park Road. In 1877, J.W. Orr built a hotel and wharf for steamers in hopes of attracting affluent summer tourists from Toronto and Hamilton to "Cottage Country" and by the late 1800's the area saw the development of many cottages and a hotel that was quite famous at the time, Hotel Louise. By the 1930's, as the region became more accessible, the cottage atmosphere turned to residential as more permanent homes were built. Today the neighbourhood still has the country, luxury appeal that it started with. The neighbourhood is a mix of ranch style bungalows or 2/3 storey custom homes on what are generally considered larger lots and loads of curb appeal. The neighbourhood boasts mature tree lined streets with an elegant and friendly vibe. Lakeshore/Lakeview, Clarkson & Port Credit is close by and shares the awesome restaurant & nightlife with Lorne Park. Combine the attractive characteristics of neighbourhood with an excellent school system and you have what is one of the most sought after neighbourhoods for young families in the greater Toronto area.
Most daily errands are likely to be done by car but there is easy access to the QEW & the 403. The Clarkson and Port Credit GO Stations are close by and the bus system will connect riders to the Hurontario LRT.
