Parkwoods-Donalda is located in the city of Toronto, a geographically large neighbourhood located just south of Highway 401, West of Victoria Park Ave, North of Lawrence Road and east of the Don River.
The Northern part of the neighbourhood (area north of York Mills Road/Parkwoods Village Drive) is populated by mostly new immigrants to the city and has a mix of lower income and middle income families. As a result there is a huge number of visible minorities (over 50%). Chinese, South Asians and Blacks (African, Caribbean) make up the largest percentage of ancestries in the area, after Canadian and other mixes. The area south of York Mills Road is a fairly affluent neighbourhood, with a large number of original homeowners (1957 to 1962 purchasers) still occupants (or their heirs).
In the North West quadrant of the neighbourhood is the area known as Graydon, which is built up on hillside terrains and is home to the Donalda Golf course.

Orchids in clay pots wink at the quiet street from the front window of a classic Don Mills bungalow. Here in the centre of Parkwoods–Donalda, streets wind around ravines and the Donalda Golf and Country Club, while bird chirps fill the air, as do the sounds of the nearby 401 and DVP. Brady Bunch–era backsplits and bungalows with carports line streets with names like Coral Cove and Rialto. Townhouses and apartments on the fringes attract first-time buyers, while renters and new immigrants add to the area’s growing South and East Asian communities. With price tags sometimes a quarter cheaper than in Don Mills or Leaside, this neighbourhood has long been overlooked and underpriced. However, that’s starting to change: bidding wars and construction on supersize mansions have begun—so much for the dream of affordable suburbia.
