Welcome to Thornhill
Thornhill enjoys the unique distinction of being situated in two different cities; the City of Vaughan west of Yonge Street and the City of Markham east of Yonge Street. Thornhill shares its southern boundary with the City of Toronto. The old village of Thornhill is clustered around Yonge Street between Centre and John Streets. This bucolic setting is highlighted by the east branch of the Don River which meanders downstream through the village and adjacent ravine parkland.
The new Thornhill which has branched out from the old village is a collection of new home subdivisions surrounded by shopping centres, community centres, and highly ranked schools. Thornhill features a large Jewish, Eastern European and Italian population. Thornhill landmarks include the historic Thornhill Village heritage area, Uplands Golf and Country Club, the Bayview Golf and Country Club and the Promenade Shopping Centre.
