West Rouge

The West Rouge community is nestled between Lake Ontario and the Rouge River Valley. It is one of Toronto's most scenic neighbourhoods. West Rouge's perfectly sloped hills and winding roads lined with soaring trees lend to the feeling of cottage country. This community has a very active community association, which lends itself to being a strong family-oriented area. The West Rouge sports and recreation association, in conjunction with the West Rouge community association, puts on a “Family Day” annually. West Rouge Community Centre also holds Valentines Day and New Year’s dances.

The Boundaries

West Rouge is located with Lake Ontario and railway tracks to the south, Port Union Road to the west, Rouge River Provincial Park and Rouge River to the east, and Kingston Road and 401 to the north.

Its Story

In 1926, West Rouge was primarily farmland. At this time real estate developer Cecil White created the "Rouge Hills" subdivision. White’s grand vision for this development was to create an adult summer playground, with grand country estates. The vision was to spread out the country estates along the Rouge River and create private boathouses on an elaborate canal system to service these estates. However, this vision was never fully realized. Only a few cottages were built on Ridgewood Road and Rouge Hills Drive. These buildings are the remaining legacies of this subdivision. In the 1940's year round residential development of the West Rouge neighbourhood began. Individual lots were purchased by independent homeowners and built on. Through the 1950, 60's and 70's, builders subsequently developed many of the remaining large parcels of land. When the former Rouge Hills Golf and Country Club located in the Rouge Valley was sold to developers in the 1980's more housing was added.
