Home of the bicycle
Weston is a neighborhood in Toronto, Ontario, located in the northwest of the city, south of Highway 401, east of the Humber River, north of Eglinton Avenue, and west of Jane Street.
Weston's generous communal dignity is indisputable along Weston Road, which serves as the main road in the neighborhood.
Weston Road also serves as the way for the annual Weston Santa Clause Parade which is held every December. This street is filled with everything from car dealerships to fast food restaurants and small retail shops.
The Crossroads Center on Weston Road south of Highway 401 is a big box retail center that consists of an excellent mix of high profile national chain stores.
Like most Ontario incorporated communities Weston has its own motto "Home of the Bicycle" which hints to the Canada Cycle and Motor Company which was based in Weston until 1970, and was considered to have been at one time the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world. Weston no longer assembles bicycles, but it does have an admirable bike path that follows the Humber River all the way south to the Martin Goodman Trail on the Toronto waterfront.
Lions Park off Hickory Tree Road, overlooking the Humber River, is the biggest park in Weston.
The community is stippled with grand old churches with architectural importance. Most streets in Weston are coated with tall mature trees, some well over 100 years old.
