The neighbourhood of Humber Summit, as the name suggests, is located just off of the Humber River at the top of the city. Technically within North York but looking more like neighbouring Etobicoke, Humber Summit includes dipping valleys, plenty of parks and tons of walking trails that follow the weaving currents of the river. It was, of course, the Humber River itself that first helped inhabit the area in the nineteenth century. Settlers came to work at pioneer Joseph Rowntree’s grist and saw mills, which he operated on Humber’s eastern and western banks. Affordable, quiet, convenient and picturesque, Humber Summit was a great place to live in the mid-1800’s and continues to be a great place to live today.
