In a nutshell

Deer Park gravitates around the busy intersection of Yonge St and St Clair Ave, Toronto's highest point. It is one of the most urbanized areas outside of the downtown core hosting a mix of low to high-rise commercial and residential buildings, most of them having been erected in the second half of the 20th century.

St. Clair was once a hub for corporate activity housing the head offices of energy giant Imperial Oil and food processor Maple Leaf Foods. Some large companies, such as Weston and Equitable Bank, maintain a large presence in the neighbourhood but new office space developments stalled decades ago.

The neighbourhood is lodged between Rosedale and Forest Hill, some of Toronto's most affluent neighbourhoods, and is itself home to a mostly upper-middle class population. Since 1891, Upper Canada College, attending to Canada's elite and wealthy, has been located in Deer Park.

Head to Yonge & St. Clair to access a slew of shopping and dining options and the TTC subway and streetcar systems.
