Maryvale is a neighbourhood in the Scarborough section of Toronto, Canada. It is located on the edge of Scarborough with its western border being Victoria Park Avenue. To the north it is bordered by Highway 401, to the east by Warden and to the south by the railroad tracks.

The area was first settled as farmland and the neighbourhood is named after the Maryvale farm that once covered part of the area. It was an early part of Scarborough to be developed, being turned into a new suburb in the early 1950s.

The most prominent monument in the community is the Metro store at Parkway Mall which has a distinctively curved roof, that was the largest wooden arch in Canada at the time of its construction. Originally built as a Grand Union store in 1958 then a Miracle Food Mart, the Parkway Mall Metro location was declared a heritage building in 2009.[1]
