Woodbridge is a sizable suburban area and one of the five communities that make up Vaughan – the others being Maple, Thronhill, Concord and Kleinburg. Before amalgamating with these surrounding communities in 1971, Woodbridge was an independent town with a longstanding history, its roots digging back to the early 19th century.
Today, Woodbridge is one of the bigger suburban areas in Vaughan. A large Italian population still holds true to its cultural heritage, resulting in a selection of phenomenal Italian bakeries, butchers and restaurants, such as Vinsanto Ristorante, Zizi Trattoria and Mario’s Italian Restaurant and Grill, considered by many to be some of the best Italian cuisine in the GTA. It’s also home to the Woodbridge Italian Festival, which showcases vendors from local business, a carnival with rides and attractions, live entertainment and a soccer tournament.
Speaking of soccer, when it comes to athletics, Woodbridge adheres to the Italian inclination towards European football. The Ontario Soccer Centre, Canada’s leading soccer facility, is located within the community, and is the headquarters for The Ontario Soccer Association and houses The Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame and Museum.
For shopping, Woodbridge is known for its boutique shopping district, Market Lane. With a variety of locally owned shops, restaurants, fashion boutiques and beauty stylists, Market Lane attracts discerning shoppers from all over the surrounding regions.
The Boyd Conservation Area is an excellent draw for outdoor enthusiasts, featuring winding trails along the Humber River for hiking and mountain biking, hundreds of species of birds for the avid birdwatcher and multiple picnic sites for large gatherings.
