Silverthorn is a working class neighborhood filled with affordable homes within a reasonable commuting distance of downtown Toronto. Silverthorn has an established Italian community as well as being home to many new Canadians from a myriad of different backgrounds.
Silverthorn's hilly terrain is the distinguishing feature of this neighborhood. The predominantly one way streets that twist and wind through Silverthorn's gently rolling hills are a refreshing change from the grid-like street pattern common in so many Toronto neighborhoods.
The main shopping thoroughfare in Silverthorn is situated along Eglinton Avenue. Here you will find local convenience stores mixed in with professional and medical offices. The Westside Mall, on Eglinton Avenue at Caledonia Road, is anchored by national department and grocery stores. Rogers Road also has a fairly busy retail strip that includes the Black Creek Super Value Shopping Centre just west of Keele Street.
The Keele Street and Rogers Road buses connect to the Keele and Ossington stations on the Bloor-Danforth subway line. The Eglinton Avenue bus connects to the Eglinton station on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line.
Motorists can get to downtown Toronto's financial and entertainment districts in approximately twenty minutes using Keele Street, which is the main north-south street running through Silverthorn. For motorists travelling out of the city the Allen Expressway, off Eglinton Avenue, is approximately fifteen minutes from Silverthorn.
A cluster of recreational activities are available in the Black Creek Drive and Eglinton Avenue area. The Centennial building at 2694 Eglinton Avenue East has an indoor swimming pool as well as being the home of a local historical museum.
There are four large public parks located along Black Creek Drive near Eglinton Avenue. Starting at the north end, Trethewey Park is a nature revitalization area on the banks of the Black Creek. This is an ideal spot for picnic goers and nature enthusiasts. Coronation Park is a mix of sports and leisure. This park has a T-Ball and Softball leagues as well as two tennis courts, a children's playground and a woodland trail. North and South Keelesdale Park feature large sports fields and baseball diamonds. The Chris Tonks Ice Arena is also situated in South Keelesdale Park.
The Silverthorn Public Library, at 1748 St. Clair Avenue West is famous for appearing on the opening sequence of the syndicated Book Mice television show. Children from all over Canada and as far away as the United States have stopped in to visit the home of the book mice. The staff at this library even conduct a Book Mice Tour much to the delight of the children who visit here.
