Why we like it.
Regent Park is in midst of the most ambitious revitalization project the City of Toronto has undertaken in recent memory. The New Regent Park, developed by Daniels Corporation is a mix of market value condominium towers and townhouses along with brand new subsidized apartment buildings. The project is about halfway through a 15-20 year plan, of replacing existing building, adding new parks, retail, recreation and cultural centres.
Regent Park offers an affordable home buying option in the heart of downtown. It’s easy walking distance to Cabbagetown, Corktown, St. Lawrence Market, the Distillery District and Riverdale.

Regent Park just happens to be the home of both the best Thai food and the best samosas in all of Toronto. Not too shabby!
Could very well be the best Thai food outside of Thailand. Specializing in cuisine from Northern Thailand – this place is the cure for the ketchupy Pad Thai that plagues the city. Only downside: the often long wait times for a table.
This top notch Bistro on the ground floor of the Paintbox condiminium building features a creative menu focused on seasonal ingredients. Not only are the prices reasonable, they provide education and career opportunities for local residents. Finally, a meal you can feel good about!
The original location on O’Connor Dr. has long been known as the go-to samosas place in the city. Now there’s one downtown. Yum.
Great coffee, great people. This neighbourhood gem is our favourite independent business to open in the area. In addition to the standard coffee and cookie fare, they have light sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. Fantastic farm fresh eggs available in the fridge, the ones where the yolk is that lovely bright orange.
Brand spanking 4 year old grocery store right at the corner of Parliament and Dundas. Grocery shopping has never been so convenient.
Everyone loves a good Farmers Market. This one runs from June to September at the corner of Dundas St and Regent Park Blvd. The Regent Park Farmer’s Market is unique in that it offers small plot growers and rooftop gardeners from across Toronto the opportunity to sell their bounty. How cool is that?
Not exactly known as a shopping destination – at least not yet. The new ground floor commercial strip on the pedestrian friendly Regent Park Blvd is about to change that. Stay tuned.
