Bridle Path–Sunnybrook–York Mills is a municipal and census district in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and is the name officially designated by Toronto City Hall. Traditionally, Torontonians regard this area as five distinct neighbourhoods formerly in North York before it was amalgamated into Toronto in 1998. The district is part of federal and provincial electoral district Don Valley West, and Toronto electoral ward 25: Don Valley West (North). In 2006, it had a population of 8,210.[1]

Viewing the district in four approximate quadrants, the northwest quadrant is the southern part of York Mills, particularly the district's northwest corner which is the separate neighbourhood of Hoggs Hollow, the northeast quadrant (south of Wilket Road) is the Bridle Path, the southwest quadrant includes portions of the former communities of Lawrence Park (north of Blythwood Ravine in Sherwood Park) and North Toronto (south of Sherwood Park), and the southeast quadrant is occupied by Sunnybrook Park.

The area has an irregular and complex boundary. It is bordered on the north by York Mills Road. The west border begins in the north by following Yonge Street southward until it instersects with Yonge Boulevard, at which point it turns east and follows the North York border for the remainder of the district's east and south borders, into the Don River valley, then turning south and following an imaginary line which bisects the communities (Lawrence Park and North Toronto) between Yonge Street and Bayview Avenue all the way to Fairfield Road (two blocks north of Eglinton Avenue East). The south border begins here, and follows Fairfield to Bayview, then follows Bayview northward briefly to just north of Glenvale Boulevard at the grounds of the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind), at which point it once again follows an imaginary line that is also the border of North York, running east along the north boundary of residences on the north side of Glenvale, and into Sunnybrook Park, to the point where Wilket Creek terminates and runs into the Don River. The district's east border is Wilket Creek.
