Caribou Park was originally part of a farm owned by early settler Thomas Snider, who owned the farm from the 1830s to the 1870s. Take a glimpse back in time at the original Snider farmhouse at the western edge of this neighbourhood at 519 Glengrove Avenue, surrounded by towering blue spruce trees. Today the area is surrounded by mature trees, lush green landscapes and a ravine with a creek; no wonder the street names include Otter Creek, Beaver Street, and Kimbark. Real Estate in this neighbourhood consists of many Georgian, Tudor or English Cottage styles of architecture, with some of the larger homes even backing onto the ravine and Otter Creek. With these historic beauties, you will also find a pocket of split-level and ranch style bungalows located west of Caribou Park and closer to Bathurst Street, dating back to the 50s and 60s. Residents who live in Caribou Park enjoy the privilege of living within walking distance to distinctive and popular shops along Avenue Road in addition to bakeries, cafes, restaurants and luxury shopping boutiques.
