Rexdale is a suburb in Toronto located in the west end between Islington and Kipling avenues north of Rexdale Boulevard. Rexdale was still farmland in the 1950's when its developer Rex Heslop began the planning that led to the building of this neighbourhood.
He predicted that the completion of Highway 401 and the creation of jobs at the nearby airport would bring a strong demand for houses in Rexdale. His prediction proved to be correct as the subdivision was sold out in a relatively short period of time between the mid 1950's and the early 1960's.
