Toronto neighbourhood Deer Park can be found at the popular intersection of Yonge and St. Clair nestled between Forest Hill and Moore Park. The area itself is a unique blend of office buildings, restaurants, shops, and private house and apartment dwellings.
Historically, the land was once purchased, owned, and named by the Heath family back in the early 1800’s when it was simply acres of rural land. By the 1850’s development began including a racetrack, school, and hotel where the guests could see the namesake deer roaming free. A most notable addition in the 1890’s was the prestigious Upper Canada College—a boy’s private school that still remains in full operation there today.
While the deer have since cleared out, the area is still a lovely balance of green space, parklands, residential and commercial zones making it widely attractive to any urbanite looking for a hint of nature.
