The apartment towers of Parkway Forest rise south of Sheppard Avenue East.

Parkway Forest is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the north of the city, in the former City of North York. North York was merged with five other municipalities and a regional government to form the new "City of Toronto" in 1998.

Parkway Forest is bounded on the west by Don Mills Road, on the north by Sheppard Avenue, on the east by the Don Valley Parkway, and on the south by Highway 401.

It is a dense development of luxury condominiums, high-rise rental apartment buildings, low-rise rental apartment buildings and townhouse complexes. Parkway Forest has a large open park (Parkway Forest Park), a firehouse, a recreation centre, a shopping plaza (Parkway Forest Plaza), and a public school (Forest Manor Public School).

It sits directly to the south of the Fairview Mall shopping centre, and is served by the Don Mills subway station on the Toronto Transit Commission's Sheppard subway line.

A new "affordable-housing development" has recently been constructed adjacent to Parkway Forest Plaza, at 121 Parkway Forest Dr. The apartment building occupies what used to be the heavily-wooded Forest Manor Park.

In early 2005, the North York Community Council committee of the Toronto City Council rejected a proposal to replace many of the low-rise apartment buildings and townhouses by seven high-rise condominium towers ranging in height from 39 to 49 storeys. In July 2009, construction of two 40-storey condominium towers began at the corner of Forest Manor and Sheppard. This is supposedly going to result in the remove of two of the apartment buildings adjacent to these two construction sites.
