The Kingsway is known to be an affluent neighbourhood in western Toronto. The Kingsway has a strong suburb feel as it is mainly residential with a few commercial areas along its northern and southern borders. It also gets an exclusive feel due to the east and west borders being all natural boundaries.
This neighbourhood is also desirable because it offers many schools (both public and Catholic) to children of all ages. Some of these schools include: Kingsway College School, Lambton-Kingsway Junior Middle School, Our Lady of Sorrows Elementary School, Bishop Allen Academy.
Since The Kingsway has natural boundaries on the east and west side, it is expected that is neighbourhood would have a lot of green space. Etobicoke Lawn Bowling Club is located directly outside of the neighbourhood; it features a couple of bowling greens, a baseball diamond and a few tennis courts. Home Smith Park located at the eastern boundary of The Kingsway has a beautiful 10 kilometre trail that is used by bikers, skaters and joggers; this scenic trail leads to the Martin Goodman Trail on the waterfront. Some other parks in and around the neighbourhood include: Tom Riley Park, King Mill Park, Etienne Brule Park, Magwood Park, Lambton Park, Humbertown Park, Lambton-Kingsway Park, Jackson Parkette, and Donnybrook Park.
