Buttonville Airport is in Buttonville, within Markham, but typically considered a Toronto Airport. Population is approximately 30,000. The airport started as an airstrip in 1953 and officially became an airport in 1962. Current speculation is this airport will close in the next year and replaced with development of office and retail space.
With that in mind, I thought you’d enjoy a brief tour.
Walking from the parking lot to the door – about 20 steps.

Walked through the airport and out the back without having time for a photo! And our float plane awaits…
Here’s a view of the road below as we fly away from the city. You can see all the traffic heading in to work for the day.
