Moore Park is surrounded by peaceful green space and the streets are canopied by mature trees. It offers a peaceful respite from the busy city. Bordered to the north by Mount Pleasant Cemetery, and to the south by Park Drive Ravine, this neighbourhood feels like it’s far from the busy city core, although it’s actually in one of Toronto’s most convenient locations.
Homes in Moore Park are charming English Cottage, Georgian and Tudor Style, built on mostly large lots. The homes on the more exclusive streets have generous lots, and dedicated driveways. Although it is an affluent neighbourhood, some of the homes have shared driveways. The streets are planned well and are not very busy, which allows for accessible street parking when needed. Many of the homes back onto ravines that skirt the neighbourhood. There are a few townhomes throughout the area, and custom homes are growing in numbers as well. Residents appreciate the proximity to nature and the easy commute to the downtown core.
For Moore Park residents shopping is a short walk or drive to Yonge Street, St. Clair, Mount Pleasant or Davisville. Children enjoy walking “down the ramp” to Rosedale’s Summerhill shops were they meet friends for an ice-cream cone on a hot summer day. Moore Park and Rosedale are sister neighbourhoods and via “the ramp” people flow walk easily to and fro.
Moore Park Ravine is an 8-kilometre trail that runs along Mud Creek and is perfect for hiking or biking. Mooreville Park has 5 tennis courts, a baseball diamond and a wading pool to enjoy recreational sports and activities with family and friends.
This is a happy family neighbourhood with a collection of excellent schools in close proximity.
