Overview

Moore Park is surrounded on all sides by natural barriers. To the north is the Mount Pleasant Cemetery, to the south is the Park Drive Ravine and the railway tracks, to the east is the Moore Park Ravine and to the west is the Vale of Avoca Ravine.

With so much nature at its doorstep, it is not surprising that Moore Park is one of Toronto's most sought after neighbourhoods.

Homes

Moore Park includes primarily English Cottage, Georgian, and Tudor-style houses built between 1908 and 1930.

Moore Park lots are generally quite large, and many of the houses back on to one of the ravines that skirt this neighbourhood.

Moore Park also contains many newer townhouses as well as a fair number of duplex and multi-plex homes.

For such a high end neighbourhood it is somewhat surprising that many of the houses have shared rather than private driveways. However, the streets are so quiet and uncluttered that parking is not a problem.

Shopping

Moore Park residents do most of their shopping at either the Yonge and St. Clair or the Mount Pleasant and Davisville shopping districts. Both these areas are well known for their gourmet food shops and fine dining.

Moore Park residents who live in the more secluded south-east pocket of the neighbourhood can walk across a railway overpass to the small collection of neighbourhood stores on Summerhill Avenue.

Recreation

Nature and fitness enthusiasts will enjoy the Moore Park Ravine foot path, an 8 kilometre trail that passes through the Rosedale Ravine, the Mt. Pleasant cemetery, and the old Don Valley brickworks.

Moorevale Park, one block east of Mount Pleasant Road, has five tennis courts, a baseball diamond, and a wading pool.

For movie-goers Moore Park is close to a number of theatres on Yonge Street, Eglinton Avenue, and Mount Pleasant Road.
