In 1912 Toronto Suburbs Ltd. registered a Plan of Subdivision for Toronto Houses Homes to be built on Waverley Farm (Mt. Pleasant Road and Lawrence Avenue).  This Subdivision was originally called Waverley Park.  In 1931 the City of Toronto expropriated the properties in the centre of Waverley Park for the creation of a Public Park.  This Park was named WANLESS PARK and eventually the entire Neighborhood adopted this name.

Wanless Park, Wanless Road, Wanless Avenue and Wanless Crescent are all named after John Wanless, a former Alderman. WANLESS PARK is boarded East of Ronan Avenue, West of Haslemere Road / Milden Hall Road, South of Haslemere Road and North of Lawrence Avenue East. Just North of Milden Hall Road is Riverview Drive Ravine.  It also borders Lawrence Park and the Bridle Path, Teddingto Park, Bedford Park and is close to Forest Hill.

Cedarvale's residential development began in 1912 when Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, the builder of Toronto's famous Casa Loma registered a plan of subdivision for the south end of this neighbourhood under the name "Cedar Vale". Vale denoted the ravine that runs through the centre of this neighbourhood and the Cedar part of the name makes reference to the many cedars that grew in the wet lowlands of the ravine.

The Cedarvale Ravine which has long been the foundation of this neighbourhood was threatened in 1966, when the proposed Spadina Expressway was slated to run straight through the ravine on its way downtown. Some Cedarvale houses were expropriated and the floor of the ravine was clearcut to make room for the expressway.

Fortunately strong opposition to the expressway was voiced throughout the city and in 1974 the decision was made to stop the Spadina Expressway (officially called the W.R. Allen Road ) at Eglinton Avenue, thus preserving the centrepiece of this popular Toronto neighbourhood.
