Declared to be greener than any other part of the city, Scarborough is an administrative district in Toronto situated atop the Scarborough Bluff. It occupies the eastern part of Toronto and is found within the borders of Lake Ontario to the south, Rouge River and the city of Pickering to the east, Steeles Avenue to the north and Victoria Park Avenue to the west. It is by far one of the most diverse and multicultural communities in the Greater Toronto Area.
THE TREASURE CHEST OF EXPERIENCES THAT IS SCARBOROUGH
Simply put, Scarborough is a region in Toronto that hugs the eastern fringe of the city and is known amongst Torontians as a mosaic of different ethnic cultures. Scarborough is also well known for jaw-dropping natural scenery, a fine example of which is the Scarborough Bluffs. These giant clay cliffs span almost 15 kilometres and take in all of the natural beauty Lake Ontario has to offer at the same time.
On the other hand, running along the eastern edge of Scarborough, Rouge River is one of the last Southern-Ontario areas that remain untouched by development since the arrival of the first French fur traders in the late 17th century. The equally impressive Rouge Park covers a vast area of 47 square kilometres, is recognized as the first National Urban Park in Canada and also includes First Nations archaeological sites. Thanks to its multicultural and multiethnic character, a range of restaurants and cuisines are present throughout the district, from Northwestern Chinese and South Indian, to Filipino and other authentic Asian restaurants.

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS
One thing to keep in mind if you’re residing or even passing through the magnificent area that is Scarborough is the fact that, because it is so connected and intertwined with countless green and natural areas, wildlife creatures have become well adapted to human presence. They have learned to thrive as a result of being around humans and that poses an increasing number of problems in the form of home invasions in search of food and shelter.
When it comes to the most common critters you’ll likely find roaming around or even inside of your current Scarborough place of residence, examples include anything from brown bats and raccoons to squirrels and skunks. This is a pretty serious matter, since wildlife cannot only transmit diseases to humans, but can also cause damage in the form of bites and structural damage as a result of staying inside of your home.
