Reviews of Parkland on Eglinton West

Gain exclusive insight into life at Parkland on Eglinton West. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

Parkland on Eglinton offers luxurious elegance for seniors who want to leave behind all the pesky annoyances of home ownership and step into a lifestyle that encourages a renewed, deepened love of life. Find contentment and happiness in a setting that’s made just for people like you who want to remain as independent as possible and still feel vital and vibrant. Inside the building alone there’s enough to make every day a rich experience, and on top of that, you’re in the heart of a great city.

Drive past this, on Eglinton Ave. West, and you’ll be struck by the spectacular building. What’s inside, though, is even more dazzling. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a luxury resort, right in the GTA. There are luxurious amenities throughout the building. The main dining room is spectacular, with lofty ceilings, glass chandeliers, and armchairs at each seating. There’s a movie theatre and a beautiful seniors-friendly heated pool. The pub and billiards room is bustling with cheerful residents. Then there’re also indoor golf, fitness classes, personalized wellness programs, and more. All of this is designed to create an overflowing life for residents. Indeed, that's what people find here.

Luxurious, spacious apartments look out on wonderful views of the local cityscape and parks. On a clear day you can see the Toronto skyline, from south-facing suites. There’s an outdoor courtyard with gazebo, and the local area is rife with parkland (like the name). St. George’s Golf and Country Club is also nearby, as are shopping, a drug store, and other conveniences. On top of in-building amenities and nearby attractions, there are also organized outings to museums.

For all of that, the thing that really makes days wonderful here is staff at the Parkland. The people here listen to seniors and are approachable, yes, but more than that, they genuinely enjoy the interaction. It’s a place where people don’t just live together, but they learn and grow together. It truly is a place where your life can expand anew. People continue to learn in this setting, making new friends and exploring learning opportunities.

Parkland on Eglinton is a place where you can live life to the finest and to the fullest, from the moment you walk into the building through the life you lead in your private apartment or suite, to the delicious, innovative food served here, through the many amenities and services where you make new friends. You’ll feel like you’re living in a completely modern, updated five star hotel or resort–but it’s your home every day. Finally, for senior couples with varying care needs, the full continuum of care here, including memory care on the fifth floor, makes it possible for you to still live together in the same building.

My mother loves the facility & the staff. Highly recommended….

Where to Begin?
The feel like you're in a high-end, luxury condo, so elegant, quiet and private...but you can be very sociable too if you're in the mood! Wonderful places in the gorgeous Lobby to entertain visitors. So excited for the Pool to open soon to add to the exercise facilities that already exist, including bowling and golf simulators, treadmills, weights and fitness classes! And a Walking Group too when the weather permits.
The of the line courteous, reliable, friendly, professional and I don't think they are ever confronted with a question/need they won't try their best to least that has been our experience.
The DINING...while we mostly prepare meals at home, the times we've 'treated' ourselves to Parkland Dining have proven to be delicious and the menu offerings are many and they change from week to week, so plenty of variety and great to know if we just don't feel like cooking, we just call and place our order!
HEALTHCARE..while we've been lucky enough not to require the healthcare services, we have experienced the way in which Parkland has managed COVID protocols throughout our residence here...and we have felt protected and secure every single day.
We think the best measure of how residents of Parkland feel is to just notice all the smiles and good cheer as we come and go...and during the Holidays, even with COVID, it was Very Merry!
Hats off to a True Treasure in Toronto!

I enjoy the fitness classes that Parkland offers daily! I used to be a PHYS. ED teacher before and I know when something is well done. The recreation staff takes into consideration all age groups who attend.

Krys Malion, resident

I have lived at Parkland from the second day it opened and have had very positive experiences with all the staff, they listen to you and always attempt to solve your issues, if you have any. The General Manager is very approachable and helpful, so are the staff reporting to him. The food, since we have a new chef, is innovative and very good. What I personally find very nice is that the Company tries to promote from within, thus giving the staff an opportunity for advancement. I am very happy at Parkland and would like to express my thanks to all the staff here.

Edna Morgan, resident

I've been living here at Parkland for over 3 weeks now and I am very satisfied. When I ask for help from any staff member, someone is there to assist right away. So far, so good and it can only get better!

Heather Smith, family member

This is a challenging time to move to a retirement residence and the staff at Parkland have been exceptional. The Covid protocols are absolutely diligent and we feel that Mom is safe but still able to thrive in a warm, supportive community in spite of lockdown. From the move in team to the nurses, from the dining room staff to the concierge team, staff members are second to none. The chef and his team are brilliant. The activities team, though challenged with Covid rules, have developed the most ingenious and creative programming for residents — especially those having to isolate as they move in. Our whole family feels like we have joined a vibrant community along with Mom.

Carol Collings, resident

Just moved. The assistance provided is exceptional..all departments are attentive, professional and friendly. Three individuals need to be singled out in terms of the extra steps they have taken on my behalf:
Ola Kit, Abigail Beveridge and Adina Zak.

Christine B., family member

My 93 year old aunt recently moved into Parkland and she is "over the moon" excited. The facility is gorgeous, the staff is wonderful and very attentive to her and most importantly, she is safe and well looked after, even during COVID. They have been extremely cautious during COVID, and it's appreciated - after all, the health and safety of our elderly is most important. We checked out a number of facilities and nothing compared to Parkland. It's worth every penny to have a loved one in a nice place - after all, they've earned it! It is without hesitation that I would recommend Parkland. My aunt seems to have gotten 10 years of her life back now that she no longer has to deal with running a large home. Thanks go out to Abigail, Adina and all of the wonderful caregivers and nurses.
