Birch Cliff is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
It is located in the southwest part of the old city of Scarborough running along the shore of Lake Ontario atop the western part of the Scarborough Bluffs.
The area was first developed as the home of the Toronto Hunt Club in 1895 when the region was still mostly farms and woodland. As the Beaches neighbourhood was built to the west, the region became the first part of Scarborough to be developed as a suburb to the city of Toronto during the 1920s. Unlike the rest of Scarborough, which was developed after the Second World War as automotive based suburbs, Birch Cliff began as a streetcar suburb. With a TTC streetcar line running along Kingston Road to Birchmount Road. As the most populated part of the borough, Scarborough's municipal council met in a building on Kingston Road beginning in 1922. A notable section of the neighbourhood is the former Birch Cliff Quarry.
This area is a former quarry that was first used as a quarry by the Toronto Brick Company.
It covers a large area south of the railroad tracks, north of Gerrard, and east of Victoria Park. From 1954 to 1960 the old quarry was used as a landfill.
In 1960 the landfill was shut down and the site was sold to a development company.
