About Moss Park
Welcome to Toronto’s Moss Park neighbourhood!
Moss Park is a small residential neighbourhood in downtown Toronto, west of Regent Park and part of Ward 27. The area is typically considered to be between Jarvis and Parliament Streets, south of Dundas. Larger concepts of the area include Corktown, Garden District, as well as a portion of Cabbagetown. Moss Park was once the heart of Toronto’s industrial area and the homes in the area were built to supply living spaces for those workers. in the 1960’s many of the homes and buildings were then demolished to make way for the Moss Park Public Housing Project, and the area surrounding this housing project is knows as Moss Park today.
This neighbourhood may be a little rough around the edges, but it has a sense of community and many members of the community are dedicated to bettering the neighbourhood. For instance only in Moss Park will you find a year-round produce market inside of a shipping container. The first of its kind! What makes it even more unique is the market is run purely on donations and operates on a pay-what-you-can model, so that fresh healthy food is accessible to everyone.
There is an abundance of restaurants, pubs, diners, and more here. The Eaton Centre and Yonge-Dundas Square are just a few blocks away from your doorstep. Ryerson University is a 10-minute walk away, as is the George Brown St. James campus. It’s hard to get bored living around here because there’s always something to do!
