The Yonge – St. Clair neighbourhood is known as Deer Park, thanks to the great number of deer that lived in the area at the turn of the century. Centred in Midtown Toronto on the intersection of Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue it is bounded by Yonge Street and the Vale of Avoca section of Rosedale ravine in the east, Farnham Avenue and Jackes Avenue in the south, Avenue Road and Oriole Parkway in the west, the Kay Gardiner Belt Line trail in the north on
the west side of Yonge Street, and Glen Elm Avenue in the north on the east side of Yonge Street.
Deer Park has a wonderful mix of beautiful 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 neighbourhood. Over the past 10 years we have seen condos enter the neighbourhood along the main streets.
Bordered by three very exclusive Toronto neighbourhoods (Forest Hill, Rosedale and Moore Park), Yonge and St. Clair - Deer Park is knowen as a wealthy neighbourhood.
