Deer Park is different from many upscale Toronto neighborhoods in that its homes are not isolated on the periphery of the neighborhood. The residential streets spill out onto either Yonge Street or St. Clair Avenue, right into the heart of one of Toronto’s busiest shopping, entertainment, and business districts. Deer Park’s commercial center provides a good balance for this neighborhood which is surrounded by lush green parkland, majestic trees, and the Vale of Avoca Ravine.
Deer Park has a wonderful mix of detached and semi-detached houses that encompass a variety of architectural styles. Most of the original Deer Park houses were built between 1875 and 1920. Deer Park also contains a fair number of newer townhouses that blend in well with the older homes in the neighborhood. Deer Park has one of the largest selections of luxury condominium apartment buildings in Toronto. Most of these apartments have balconies with picturesque views of the park, the ravine or the city.
