New Toronto is a neighbourhood and former town in Toronto, Ontario. It is situated in the south-west of Toronto, along Lake Ontario.
New Toronto is belted by Lake Ontario to the south, with a western boundary of Twenty-Third Street (south of Lake Shore Blvd. West) and the gist between Twenty-Second and Twenty-Fourth Streets (north of Lake Shore Blvd. West), the Canadian National Railway mainline to the north, and Dwight Avenue to the east. The neighbourhood of Mimico is to the east and the neighbourhood of Long Branch is to the west.
New Toronto is now a neighbourhood in conversion, as the industrial corridor occupying the north end of the area is being redeveloped after having been vacant for many years. Industry that gently moved out of New Toronto over the years is now being re-established, in addition to institutional uses.
New Toronto is divined with a assembly of waterfront parks, including Colonel Samuel Smith Park. The skating rink at the park is Toronto’s first artificial ice rink that is a aisle rather than the traditional oval rink style. The figure 8 design of this skating rink gusts through the parks lavish landscape.
The park includes as well the first Wetlands-Wildlife Restoration trail on the Great Lakes. This wetland habitat is home to a large variety of fish and birds, as well as other reptiles and a vast array of wildflowers.
The "Lakeshore Village" shopping district, based along Lakeshore Boulevard West, is a active retail corridor that features fast food and family-style restaurants, and a wide mix of stores.
