The land for the Grosvenor Park neighbourhood was annexed by the city between 1910 and 1919. According to a 1913 map of registered subdivisions, the neighbourhood was originally split in two sections called University View and Alexandra Park. By the 1950s, the design of residential neighbourhoods departed from the previous grid system of roadways. A more modern system of curving residential streets, feeding into collector roads that connected to arterial roads was implemented, and the size of the development was based upon the drawing area of an elementary school. The philosophy was to create smaller, more aesthetically pleasing neighbourhoods with fewer intersections and more controlled traffic flow. Grosvenor Park was the first such neighbourhood designed with this idea in mind. The majority of home construction took place between 1946 and 1970, and was generally completed by 1980. en.wikipedia.org · Text under CC-BY-SA license
