Regent Park

The Vibe

Located between Cabbagetown and Corktown, just east of Parliament is the downtown neighbourhood of Regent Park. Once known primarily as community housing projects for the lower socioeconomic class, Toronto has recently began a revitalization project to help improve the area and welcome a more diverse demographic. The city has invested an estimated $1 Billion dollars for this project, and plans over the next few years to introduce a collection of condos, affordable housing, and viable retail, residential, and community space.

The Homes

While the area is considered a transitional neighbourhood, with future plans and gentrification to boost the economy, the current housing market  still remains a mix of community housing, walk-up brick low-rent apartment units, but has also introduced a collection of real estate, including two storey townhomes,  available for purchase in and around the price point of $361,000.

Who Lives Here?

Regent Park has one of the highest populations of children in the city, making readily available public schools on both Shuter and Regent Street, and two public libraries (Parliament and Riverdale branches) for community use.

What's There To Do?

Limited retail, dining, and personal services are located on Gerrard, River and Parliament streets.

Recreational facilities in Regent Park include the Regent Park Aquatic Centre on Dundas, the Regent Park Community Centre at 203 Sackville Green, the Regent Park Recreation Centre on Gerrard, and ice rinks, a ball diamond, swimming pool, playground and wading pool all in Regent Park itself.

What About Commuting?

Transportation in the area is principally streetcars and bus which provide quick access to the to the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line. Motorists have use of the Don Valley Parkway just east of Regent Park, the Gardiner Express, and Lakeshore Boulevard just minutes away.
