Penny Brown

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 on the intersection of Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue it is boundady by 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 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 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.
