About the HPRA

About Us

The High Park Residents' Association (HPRA) has a catchment area that includes over 15,000 residents living in two distinct geographical areas bordering High Park.

Originally, the HPRA catchment was located east of the park, and is bounded by Parkside Drive, High Park Boulevard, Roncesvalles Avenue / Dundas West, and Bloor Street.

In 2009, the HPRA expanded to include the area north of the park, bounded by Clendenan Avenue, Humberside Avenue, Keele Street, and Bloor Street.
