About Park Royal Mall

Park Royal is one of, if not the, oldest indoor shopping malls in Canada. You wouldn’t know that by looking at the place though as it has been renovated over the years, including in a major way fairly recently.

The mall is split into three different areas. Park Royal North is on the north side of Marine Drive and includes stores like the Bay, London Drugs and the Gap. Park Royal South is the massive facility on the other side of the main road. That’s where you’ll find stores like Staples, Best Buy, Simons, Zara, Winners, Sport Check and Osaka Market.

In addition to the two completely separate north and south indoor sections of the mall, Park Royal also has an outdoor strip mall-style area that’s designed like a cute little village. In the village there are boutique shops as well as major chain stores like Michael’s (for crafts), Home Depot, Whole Foods and Old Navy. There is also even a Tesla car dealership.
