Don Mills is one of Toronto’s best known and most popular neighbourhoods. Neighbourhood landmarks include the picturesque Donalda Golf and Country Club, and scenic Edwards Gardens. The commercial/industrial sector of Don Mills serves as the head office for IBM Canada Ltd., Global Television Station, the Toronto Real Estate Board and many other prominent companies.
The Don Mills name makes reference to the historic Don River, and the fact that several mills were operating in this part of the Don Valley during the 1800’s. Don Mills is recognized as the first planned and fully integrated post war community in North America. It is credited with laying out the blueprint for Toronto’s post-war suburban development and the building of contemporary neighbourhoods.
