Cabbagetown Old Regent Park Green space Comparison Community Spaces New Regent Park Housing Comparison Regent Park and Cabbage Town New Regent Park is a one billion dollar project made to restore Old Regent Park.

Another reason is that people with a low income will see the people with good jobs and will want to be successful like them. We also think the violence in Regent Park will go away because the area is more open
