The Wexford Heights Business Improvement Area was officially established on March 4, 2004. It is situated along Lawrence Avenue East between Birchmount Road and Victoria Park Avenue.
The Wexford Heights BIA offers the community a vast array of goods and services to choose from. Shoppers have everything right here at their fingertips. Along with a good mix of retail shops, professional offices and service establishments, it also boasts a concentration of distinctive bakeries, restaurants and fast-food establishments, many with an exciting Middle-eastern flair.
The Wexford Heights BIA is host to the Annual Taste of Lawrence Festival. This 3 day event officially gets underway the second weekend in July. It’s a great venue for the whole community, something Scarborough can be proud of. During the course of the festival there are many fun activities for the entire family. Visitors can tempt their palate with the many mouth-watering tastes the local restaurants offer or enjoy live entertainment on the main stage, many of which are local Scarborough artists. Children can enjoy a pony ride or make a craft in the junior gardener’s area or take in the games and rides on the Midway. There is also a rock climbing wall and skateboard park to test their skills. For those who want to sit back and relax and take in the sights, we offer a beer and wine garden. Make the Wexford Heights a definite destination stop; you’ll be pleasantly surprised at all we have to offer!
