Scarborough Agincourt

Ward 22

L’Amoreaux Sports Complex
100 Silver Springs Blvd
This expansive park is an oasis, featuring a ball diamond, bike trail, picnic sites, playground and sport field. The West Highland Creek runs through this park, feeding into L’Amoreaux Pond, which is located across the street in L’Amoreaux North Park. Evidence of a Wendat village along this creek was found during an archeological excavation of roughly four acres in the area. Now known as the Alexandra Site, over 19,000 artifacts were discovered, including evidence of up to 17 longhouses, sweat lodges and hearths. A plaque commemorating this village can be found in L’Amoreaux North Park, adjacent to Mary Ward Catholic Secondary School.

Finch Hydro Corridor
Birchmount Road and McNicoll Avenue
On the south side of McNicoll Avenue from Pharmacy Avenue to Birchmount Road runs 1.6 km of open green space. Soccer fields can be found near the far-east corner at Warden Avenue and McNicoll Avenue.

Adrian Hayles Murals
Victoria Park Avenue & Morecambe Gate
An artistic collaboration undertaken by the Chester Le community, these murals are a shout-out to the beauty of the community and creative talent and resilience of the residents.

Katrina Canedo Art Box
Victoria Park Avenue & Finch Avenue East
This Bell Box Mural is an abstract style and take on how the city and its multicultural citizens somehow come together and harmoniously flourish like a beautiful garden. Through the colour palette, the artwork has a magical and even almost a fairytale-like quality to reflect Toronto being such a multifaceted place that has (and always will) overcome the challenges that come with growing a strong and diverse community.

Fairglen Junior Public School Mural
2200 Pharmacy Avenue
This mural on the side of Fairglen Junior Public School was painted by students from kindergarten to grade six with the help of artist Daphne McCormick. The mural features the school’s mascot – a fox in a glen, and is meant to reflect a theme of community environment.

Christie’s Cemetery
2900 Warden Avenue
In the east parking lot of Bridlewood Mall at 2900 Warden Ave, Christie’s Cemetery is hidden in a bank of trees. Now serving as a memorial garden, this cemetery dates back to the mid-1800s, when Christie’s Methodist Church (long since demolished) was located nearby on Warden Ave. A plaque installed by the Scarborough Historical Society can be found within the cemetery.

L’Amoreaux Collegiate Institute
2501 Bridletowne Circle
L’Amoreaux Collegiate Institute officially opened in 1973, and was designed by famed Canadian architect Raymond Moriyama, who also designed the Toronto Reference Library, Scarborough Civic Centre, and Bata Shoe Museum, among many other Toronto landmarks. The school was also used as a filming location by Toronto band Rush for their Subdivisions music video. Famous alumni of the school include rapper, record producer, actor, and author Maestro Fresh-Wes, and actor Ellen Wong.

Morgan Groombridge Art Box
Finch Avenue East & Warden Avenue
The Toronto skyline is against a starry swath of night, while a figure has plucked a star from the sky. Whatever wonders or pursuits that star may represent remains a tantalizing mystery for the viewer. The portal references a sense of belonging in the whole.

Timberbank Park
240 Timberbank Blvd
With four bike paths, this park connects to the West Highland Creek Trail and is a great place to observe nature. It also has three sport fields and a children’s playground.

Labyrinth Murals at 2821 Birchmount
2821 Birchmount Road
Walk along the pedestrian pathway behind 2821 Birchmount Road to find two labyrinth murals painted on the pavement. These murals were painted by local children as part of the week-long Paving the Way Showcase led by artist Virginia Tran for the non-profit Art Starts.
