Life by Toronto’s Humber River


Toronto’s Humber Bay neighbourhood is an outdoor photographer’s playground.

If you’re a shutterbug (professional or amateur) looking to move to a beautiful part of the city with your camera, then look no further than apartments for rent in Etobicoke by Gold Seal Property Management at Roxbury Manor.

Surrounded by mature trees and greenery for as far as the eye can see, tranquil creeks, and gorgeous walking trails along Lake Ontario (that will look great through your lens no matter what season it is), Roxbury Manor is a comfortable and well-kept residential building in Toronto’s west end with plenty of fabulous photo opportunities that will keep your camera clicking for years to come.

Here are three fantastic spots less than 15 minutes away from Roxbury Manor that are just waiting to strike a pose for your camera.

Palace Pier Park

Pull together some snacks, pack your camera gear, and throw on a pair of comfortable shoes. It’s time to head to Palace Pier Park! Here you’ll find clear and stunning views of the Toronto skyline, especially at sunrise or sunset. If you’re more of a people watcher, this small patch of paradise, located a short five-minute drive from Roxbury Manor, is a great place to enjoy the diversity of the city. People from all walks of life visit on a regular basis. Just to the south, you’ll find Sheldon Lookout with some comfortable “TO Canada with love” deck chairs for when you’re ready to take a break and enjoy your picnic.

The Humber Bay Arch Bridge

If you’re into capturing iconic Toronto landmarks with your camera, here’s one for you. Located a short bike ride from Gold Seal’s Etobicoke apartments, the spectacular Humber Bay Arch Bridge is a 456-foot long pedestrian bridge along the Martin Goodman Trail with intricate architecture that makes for interesting photos no matter which angle you’re shooting from. Not only does it shine alone in pictures and as a backdrop in wedding day photos, but the bridge also offers a great platform for shooting the CNE air show over Lake Ontario.

Toronto Humber Yacht Club

Often referred to as the Jewel of the Humber, the Toronto Humber Yacht Club is an oasis not only for boaters and paddlers, but also photographers and nature lovers. Why not rent a canoe or kayak and take in the view with the lens of your camera? Just be careful not to tip! The property itself, a short walk from Roxybury Manor, is a gorgeous parklike setting on the lush banks of the Humber River with natural surroundings and a circa 1956 clubhouse that looks just like a cottage. Everyone is welcome and your Instagram fans will love it.
