Overlooking a picturesque forest ravine with a tranquil pond populated by swans, ducks, geese and colourful songbirds, our Swansea Village Co-operative is one of Toronto’s first not-for-profit housing co-operatives. Providing our members with 96 units of superior-quality, affordable housing.
Swansea Village Co-operative was built in 1956, became a co-operative in 1980, and is situated on Coe Hill Drive which runs between Windermere Avenue on the north to the Queensway (westbound) on the south. The three lowrise buildings are set on the east side of the street bordering a natural ravine and Catfish Pond, home to swans, ducks, geese and a myriad of colourful songbirds. The co-op is ideally located convenient to public transit with a bus stop (77 Swansea bus to Runnymede station on the Bloor line) directly across the street and the Queen 501 streetcar at the south end of the street. We are steps from Lake Ontario’s Sunnyside Beach; a short walk from High Park, Toronto’s largest park, and a short distance from Toronto’s famed Bloor West Village.
Our co-op’s amenities include a playground, community centre, on-site laundry, beautiful flowery gardens and vegetable gardens. While members are expected to volunteer with upkeep or on one of our committees, we also have staff on-site Monday to Friday to keep our property and units in good repair.
