Parkwoods or sometimes referred to as Parkwoods-Donalda is located in the city of Toronto, a geographically large neighbourhood located just south of Highway 401, West of Victoria Park Ave, North of Lawrence Road and east of the Don Valley Parkway.

The Northern part of the neighbourhood (area north of York Mills Road/Parkwoods Village Drive) is populated by mostly new immigrants to the city and has a mix of lower income and middle income families. As a result there is a huge number of visible minorities (over 50%). Chinese, South Asians and Blacks (African, Caribbean) make up the largest percentage of ancestries in the area, after Canadian and other mixes. The area south of York Mills Road is a fairly affluent neighbourhood, with a large number of original homeowners (1957 to 1962 purchasers) still occupants (or their heirs).

In the North West quadrant of the neighbourhood is the area known as Graydon, which is built up on hillside terrains and is home to the Donalda Golf course.

Schools

There are 10 public schools in Parkwoods, eight secular schools managed by Toronto District School Board and two separate schools operated by the Toronto Catholic District School Board. Prior to 1998, the North York Board of Education operated the secular schools.
