Custom Storage Closets & Cabinets Etobicoke
The land that is now Etobicoke has been used by different groups of First Nations Peoples. Originally the Algonquins were thought to have used the land as they passed through to Lake Erie. Then the Huron-Wendat took residence on the land, calling it home until they were pushed out by the Iroquois. Eventually the Iroquois were pushed out by the Three Fires, which was made up of the Ojibway, Odawa and Potawatomi tribes. The Algonquin-speaking Mississauga even held the land for a short period. Eventually the British took residence on the land and helped to build it up to what it is today. As of 2011, Etobicoke has grown to 347,948 people and is still expanding. Even though it has grown, Etobicoke hasn’t forgotten its beginnings. If, like Etobicoke, you have a rich history and want to incorporate that history into your home, Lancaster Custom can help design the perfect atmosphere that has style and function.
Etobicoke has one of the lowest population-to-land ratios in all of the Greater Toronto Area. This is mainly because of the vast industries taking up land and the expressways running through the borough. Etobicoke is broken up into three large neighbourhoods, which are then broken up into smaller neighbourhoods. The three neighbourhoods are The Lakeshore, Central Etobicoke and North Etobicoke. It doesn’t matter if you live in the richest or the poorest part of Etobicoke, the designers at Lancaster Customs can work with you to create the perfect home and build you custom closets and cabinets to fit all of your needs.
Etobicoke is filled with places to have adventures and create memories. Toronto’s first outdoor skating trail, Colonel Sam Smith Skating Trail, is in Etobicoke. It is 250 metres long and is in the shape of a figure eight. The outdoor skating trail isn’t the only thing to do in the winter in Etobicoke. The Centennial Park Skiing and Snowboard Centre is another place to utilize the snow in Etobicoke. Snowboards, ski poles and skates all need a place to go in the summertime when they aren’t being used. Lancaster Customs can design custom cabinets and storage to hold all of your winter equipment while you go on your summer adventures.
The winter isn’t the only time you can have fun in Etobicoke. There are festivals and events going on throughout the year. In the summer Etobicoke hosts the Toronto Ribfest in Centennial Park. During Canada Day weekend this festival brings in at least 100,000 people each year. In August, Centennial Park also hosts the Jerk Festival. Etobicoke is also home to the Taste of the Kingsway and numerous farmers markets. Picnic baskets, chairs and wagons take up a lot of room when you aren’t at a festival, but the designers at Lancaster Customs can design storage cabinets to fit all of your summer gear while you wait for the warm weather to show up.
If you aren’t one for the outdoors that’s okay because Etobicoke also has The Singing Lady Consignment Emporium that takes up two buildings on The Queensway, filled with rare finds – it’s a real shopper’s dream.Back
