Deployed in July 2018, this midtown station has accumulating over 4,600 trips in under two years! Named after ‘Summer Hill’ house (a magnificent Regency cottage built in 1842, by transportation baron Charles Thompson), the Summerhill community is celebrated as one of the most preferred neighbourhoods. Much of the area was once part of the Thompson estate but was subdivided by his heirs in the 1880s. In the 1880s, the North Toronto Railway Station was built on Yonge Street and the Summerhill community bloomed around it. This area is now known for stunning Victorian homes, tree-lined streets, plenty of park space and incredible shopping.
