Regal Heights is teeming with lush gardens, both in private yards as well as public community spaces.
Dozens of planters have been placed throughout the neighbourhood, as well as a few planting beds, all maintained by volunteers who keep them watered and blooming with seasonal flowers and greens:
Over a thousand daffodil bulbs have also been planted in the district. They are concentrated particularly on the steep southerly bank of Regal Road School, so that “a host of golden daffodils” transform the bank in the springtime:

Several tree-planting campaigns over the years have increased the tree canopy, adding to the established locusts, birches, maples, oaks and others. The terrain of Regal Heights with local emphasis on gardening, greening and preserving the natural beauty, make the area particularly good for walking.
Where Garrison Creek once rippled its way through the Heights, the lovely Springmount Avenue now winds through what was the creek cutting. This renders Springmount as a particularly interesting and beautiful avenue, whose hills are bisected by patches of flowers and shrubs planted by the community.
