The neighbourhood of Lytton Park and Allenby is the joining of 2 distinct areas — Lytton Park is the northern portion, centered around the park that bears its name, and Allenby is a smaller section to the south. So, whether you’re looking for condos for sale in Lytton Park or Allenby, you’re part of the same neighbourhood.
Lytton Park and Allenby is banded by Yonge Street to the east, Bathurst to the west, and Eglinton to the south — and it’s there where most businesses in the neighbourhood are located. Residents enjoy access to restaurants, retail stores, pubs, and salons, and Yonge Eglinton Centre is just south east of the neighbourhood.
As a family neighbourhood, there are great schools such as Allenby Junior Public School, large green spaces like Chatsworth Ravine, and sports fields and athletic facilities.

If you’re looking for Allenby condos for sale, there are only 2 buildings in the southern portion of the neighbourhood.
