The Mimico Creek Valley is home to a variety of wildlife including beavers, deers, groundhogs, skunks, raccoons, red tailed hawks and blue birds- all of which have been spotted by residents of this neighbourhood. If you love nature and animals, you will love the West Deane Park neighbourhood.
West Deane Park neighbourhood was farmland when it was purchased by magnate Percy Law in the 1930's. Law used the farmland to raise prize cattle and race horses and subsequently served as a storage depot for his construction equipment.In keeping with his love of race horses, Percy Law built a Colonial Revival "Old Kentucky" style home over an existing brick farmhouse that stood on his property. This impressive house with its large Corinthian- style pillars is still standing, set back from the street at number 59 Beaverbend Road.Percy Law sold his hobby farm in the early 1960's to developer Edmund Peachy who built the present day neighbourhood. Peachy named this subdivision West Deane Park, in honour of his wife whose maiden name was Deane.
