Flemingdon Park

Flemingdon Park is a multicultural community in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, located in the North York district of the city. It is part of federal and provincial electoral district Don Valley West, and Toronto electoral ward 26: Don Valley West (South). In 2006, it had a population of 21,290.

It is bordered on the north by Eglinton Avenue East, on the west by the Don River (west branch), and on the east and south by the Don River (east branch). The two branches of the Don join at the neighbourhood’s southwest corner. The south border is technically a parkland access road formerly known as Old Lawrence Avenue. Flemingdon Park is somewhat separated from neighbouring communities by river valleys on 3 sides, and a light industrial area, now mostly used as corporate offices, next to several railway lines on the north side.

The community derives its name from its original owner, Robert John Fleming, the mayor of Toronto in 1892–1893 and 1896–1897, and the nearby Don River.
