Scarlett Mills Park is located on the west bank of the Humber River near Eglinton Avenue. Numerous members of the Scarlett family were early settlers in the area north of Lambton Mills, and Scarlett Road actually traversed many of their homesteads. John Scarlett owned a sawmill and distillery operation that was located on the west bank here Scarlett Road crosses the Humber River.
Most of Lambton Golf and Country Club is situated on John Scarlett's homestead. After Hurricane Hazel inflicted considerable damage to life and property in 1954, land was acquired from various sources to form the park.
Directions: Vehicles can enter Scarlett Mills Park from Edenbridge Drive. The park is situated on the Scarlett Road 79 and Eglinton West 32 bus routes Pedestrians and cyclists can travel through the park along the Tommy Thompson Trail. Information provided by the city of Toronto's website.
