Playter Estates is an area in the east end of Toronto, Ontario, Canada bounded by Jackman Avenue to the east, the Don River Valley to the west, Danforth Avenue in the south, and Fulton Avenue in the north.
The neighbourhood is built on land once owned by the Playter family for whom two streets in the area are named.
The old farmhouse of the Playter household at 28 Playter Crescent is now the Playter Mansion, which is often used for various films, television shows, and commercials.
The neighbourhood is historically Greek, but is increasingly popular among artists and business professionals.
The advent of Taste of the Danforth, a weekend long celebration of Danforth Avenue cuisine and culture, has made the area far more popular in recent years.
George Henry Playter was born around 1736 in Surrey and died around 1820-1822 in what is now Toronto. He emigrated from England to Pennsylvania, where he married Elizabeth Welding. During the American Revolution, he served, as a lieutenant first, and later as a captain, with the Loyalist "Guides and Pioneers" regiment, whose members served as scouts and guides for the army.
