The Gardens of Regal Heights

City ViewThe natural beauty of the city panorama from Regal Heights is the backdrop for a district where house and garden are a priority for homeowners.

Many of the interesting and well-kept gardens are divided by a variety of hedges that contribute to the natural greenery of the many-treed area.

Individual gardens have been enhanced by the effort of the community as a whole. Several tree-planting campaigns over the years have increased the tree canopy, adding to the established locusts, birches, maples, oaks and others.

Garden Tour

Over a thousand daffodil bulbs have 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.

PlanterPlanters have been placed throughout the public areas and are well tended by volunteers who keep them watered and blooming with seasonal flowers and greens.

Regal Heights is deprived of a large park, but smaller community gardens have been established alongside the local library and on Rosemount at Oakwood Avenue

Bench in Greenery.

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.

FlowersThe terrain of Regal Heights with local emphasis on gardening, greening and preserving the natural beauty, make the area particularly good for walking.
