A Look at Regent Park’s Thriving Community

On a chilly November evening (windchill factor of -18!) Barry Thomas, Operating Unit Manager at Regent Park, led us on a site visit of Regent Park and told us stories of the transformation that the community has experienced. The site visit captured the new developments of the PaintBox Bistro, Daniels Spectrum and epic indoor pool as well as the community driven initiatives like the beautiful basement mosque, homework support centre and the Wali’s grocery store that’s brought safety and food access to local residents. Regent Park illustrates the amazing power of community. But don’t take our word for it, go have a look for yourself.

A detailed description of the tour was featured on Spacing.ca. Click here to read all about it!
