Cottage Country in the City
Nestled between the Rouge River Valley and Lake Ontario, the West Rouge is one of Toronto's most scenic neighbourhoods. West Rouge's gently sloping hillside is carved with winding roads and lined with towering trees that resemble a cottage country atmosphere.
West Rouge is a family-oriented neighbourhood with a very active community association. This association, in affiliation with the West Rouge sports and recreation association, runs a popular "Family Day" each September, and hosts New Years and Valentines day dances which are all held at the West Rouge Community Centre.
