|River mouth||Ashbridge's Bay, Lake Ontario|
|Length||4 km (2.5 mi)|
Ashbridge's Creek was a watercourse that flowed in Ashbridge's Bay, between the Don River and Highland Creek. Its headwaters were north of Greenwood and Danforth avenues, making it about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) long.
The creek was buried, and converted to a sewer, in 1909, together with nearby Smalls Creek, and Tomlin's Creek, shortly after their communities they ran through were annexed by the growing city of Toronto.
Portions of a fence the Ashbridge family erected along the creek, to keep their cattle from polluting it, survive to the present day, near Craven Road.
