West Deane Park is an extremely quiet neighbourhood with a good mix of long-time residents and newcomers. The country feel of this neighbourhood is derived from the Mimico Creek Valley, which cuts a wide strip through the centre of West Deane Park neighbourhood. The Mimico Creek Valley is home to a variety of wildlife including beavers, deers, groundhogs, skunks, raccoons, red tailed hawks and blue birds- all of which have been spotted by residents of this neighbourhood. If you love nature and animals, you will love the West Deane Park neighbourhood.

History:
West Deane Park neighbourhood was farmland when it was purchased by magnate Percy Law in the 1930's. Law used the farmland to raise prize cattle and race horses and subsequently served as a storage depot for his construction equipment.In keeping with his love of race horses, Percy Law built a Colonial Revival "Old Kentucky" style home over an existing brick farmhouse that stood on his property. This impressive house with its large Corinthian- style pillars is still standing, set back from the street at number 59 Beaverbend Road.Percy Law sold his hobby farm in the early 1960's to developer Edmund Peachy who built the present day neighbourhood. Peachy named this subdivision West Deane Park, in honour of his wife whose maiden name was Deane.

Homes:
Peachy subdivided th eland into the layout of the present day neighbourhood. The majority of the West Deane Park houses were built in the 1960's. Homes here are more slightly more recent than many other Etobicoke neighbourhoods built in the 1950's. West Deane Park homes have more of a suburban feel to them, with generous lots sizes and larger driveways. Typical home styles of West Deane Park include a mixture of ranch-style bungalows, split level homes, and two story residences. There are also small number of row-houses and multiplex homes located on the periphery of this neighbourhood. The area around Beaverbend Road was developed later than the rest of this neighbourhood and therefore includes some larger and more modern family-style houses built in the 1980's
