Don Mills

Don Mills is famous for being Canada's first planned postwar suburb that saw farmers fields turned into a vast mix of residential, commercial and industrial uses. While built for the car, Don Mills is still remarkably walkable as the central shopping area (the recently opened Shops at Don Mills) is close to the residential areas that circle it. On the periphery are tracts of land given over to light industrial uses. Throughout Don Mills excellent examples of modern architecture can be found, from ranch-style houses to glass and steel factory buildings.
