Originally named after Scarborough, North Yorkshire in England by Elizabeth Simcoe, the first wife of the first lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada, Scarborough has grown its own reputation. Even though it is only a district of Toronto and doesn’t count as a city yet, Scarborough has gained notoriety. This borough of the GTA is known on the one hand as one of the greenest parts of the metropolitan area, but it’s also known for its crime rate.
Scarborough has been compared to some of the roughest urban areas in the United States, including Compton and Harlem. But in fact Scarborough is a vital part of Toronto’s diverse multicultural community, and it also contributes a great deal to the local economy. There are a lot of big companies who call the streets of Scarborough home such as Toyota Canada Inc., Yellow Pages Group, Telus and even 241 Pizza and Pizza Nova have their headquarters in the borough.
Scarborough is also known for its beautiful natural landmarks. The Scarborough Bluffs are along the western shoreline of Lake Ontario. The highest peak is 300 feet above the coastline and is 15 kilometres long. The Scarborough Bluffs are the result of sedimentary deposits from over 12,000 years ago. Now the park has trails, beaches, gardens, sports and recreational facilities, and amenities.
Scarborough also has Birkdale Park, Doris McCarthy Trail, Milliken Park, Morningside Park and Rouge Beach Park, just to name a few.
