Thornhill Ontario

Welcome to Thornhill, Ontario

Thornhill is one of the larger subdivisions in the Vaughan/Markham region as it boasts a population of approximately 110,000. It was founded back in 1794 as a small municipal village, but has now grown into a thriving community with numerous schools, churches, commercial endeavors and upscale residential areas.

Thornhill revolves around Yonge Street and can be accessed by major provincial highways including 7 and 404. The area has grown steadily since the 1960s and is regarded as a friendly multicultural location with a diverse population. There is plenty of parkland within Thornhill and some of the most popular sites of interest include Old Victoria Hall, the Mason Cogswell Wagonyard, and Conley Park.

Welcome to Thornhill!

With Yonge Street at its core, Thornhill is a suburban high-end neighbourhood with some seriously luxurious real estate! This area has much more than just beautiful homes, though, including a diverse ethnic community and fantastic neighbourhood programs.
