WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DECADE MAKES – A BRAND NEW REGENT PARK IS TAKING SHAPE

<Regent Park as it was about a decade ago>

The new Regent Park shows what can be done when the city, province and a developer work together – mixing market value and public housing, creating parkland, playgrounds, soccer fields, a running track, an ice rink, a state-of-the-art aquatic centre, theatres, a fashion design school, restaurants, community gardens, a supermarket, coffee shops, a bank, senior’s housing, a new community centre – the works.

Two-thirds of this massive project is finished, but there’s much more to come.  To watch the Regent Park neighbourhood evolve take the #506 streetcar to Sackville Street and Gerrard East – and walk south.
