We hope this website will provide you with the information you’re looking for about our favourite corner of the City – Weston! Whether you’re a long-time resident, or someone who is considering a move to our community, we know you’ll find what you’re looking for on welcometoweston.ca.
The Village of Weston was founded in 1796 on the banks of the majestic Humber River along which some of the most picturesque bike trails in the entire City can be found. Our historic homes have been used as backdrops for film and television sets and still rank as some of the most affordable in the City. Located within 5 minutes of the 400 series highways and our GO stop (only 18 minutes to Union Station!) makes Weston ideal for getting in or out of the City. In 2015, the new UP Express will run between Union Station and Pearson airport, with a full-service stop in Weston. The Weston Farmers’ Market serves up fresh, local produce every Saturday from May through October. Our schools consistently rate among the top schools in the former City of York with an excellent International Baccalaureate program at the local high school and our beautiful Carnegie library, designed in the Arts & Crafts style, will celebrate its 100th Anniversary this year.
We are now being recognized as a ‘Cultural Hub’ with the brand new Artscape Weston Common officially opening in Spring 2019. This building is now the second home to UrbanArts, our local community arts council, and a new home for Shakespeare In Action, a theatre education company that makes Shakespeare fun, accessible and relevant for children and youth.
Come discover Weston ~ one of the best kept secrets in the City!
