Silverthorn

Welcome to Silverthorn

Silverthorn is a working class neighbourhood filled with affordable homes within a reasonable commuting distance of downtown Toronto. Silverthorn has an established Italian community as well as being home to many new Canadians from a myriad of different backgrounds.

Silverthorn's hilly terrain is the distinguishing feature of this neighbourhood. The predominantly one way streets that twist and wind through Silverthorn's gently rolling hills are a refreshing change from the grid-like street pattern common in so many Toronto neighbourhoods.
