Geography

Woburn is bordered by Highway 401 to the north, Scarborough Golf Club Road and Orton Park Road to the east, the CN Railway tracks to the south, and McCowan Road and Bellamy Road to the west. A post-office at Painted Post Drive and Markham Road, and a schoolhouse at Markham Road and Ellesmere Road, today the site of Woburn Collegiate Institute, were important sites in the early community. Painted Post Drive connected Woburn to the southwest via Danforth Road and Danforth Avenue to Toronto, and to the east via Military and Colonel Danforth Trails to Kingston Road and points east (for more details, see Danforth Avenue).

The south and south east sections of Woburn, along Highland Creek, have a great amount of green space, echoed by the tree lined and winding roads typical of the neighbourhood.
