Being one of the most popular Toronto neighbourhoods, Leasides’s boundaries are Southvale Drive to the south, Laird Drive to the east, and Sunnybrook Park to the north. The area is named after William Lea and the Lea family, who were originally from Philadelphia, USA and became settlers in the early 19th century.

Up until 1998, Leaside was a part of East York Township. In 1998, Leaside became a part of the new City of Toronto. Leaside real estate consists mostly of 1930s and ’40s homes with generous lot sizes.
