The Lowdown on Moss Park

Your Typical Neighbour

This neighbourhood may be a little rough around the edges, but honestly, it’s a one-of-a-kind living experience. The area is dominated by public housing projects, apartment complexes, and student housing - so you really have a diverse crowd of people here. The main park offers a recreational centre, tennis courts, and mobile safe injection sites tend to pop up here. Your typical neighbour might be a young professional new to the city, a Ryerson or George Brown student, or a big Kim’s Convenience fan - the actual store is in this ‘hood! 

[Writer’s note: Seriously though, don’t overlook this area because of its reputation. As a woman in my early twenties who lived in Moss Park for 3 years, I loved it! - Bela]

Moss Park can be polarizing, but it’s a true urban Toronto mix - even from a real estate perspective. It’s super central - so all the services and conveniences of the downtown core are at your fingertips. It’s also very diverse--ethnically, socioeconomically, and architecturally--so the whole range that is Toronto is on display. If you prefer a more homogenous (some might argue sanitized) version of the city, then this may not be the right place for you. However, for serious urbanites, Moss Park offers everything from rougher multi-unit income properties to some of the edgiest condos and warehouse conversion projects in the city. (Check out Stonecutters Lofts, Boiler Factory Lofts, Glass House Lofts, and Richard Bigley Lofts for great examples.)

About Moss Park

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. Ryerson University is a 10-minute walk away, as is the George Brown St. James campus. There is an abundance of restaurants, pubs, diners, and more here. The Eaton Centre and Yonge-Dundas Square are a few blocks away from your doorstep. It’s hard to get bored living around here because there’s always something to do! 501 Queen Street and 505 Dundas Street streetcar routes operate east-west in the neighbourhood. Bus routes include the 75 Sherbourne along Sherbourne from Rosedale to Queen’s Quay and the 65 Parliament Street bus from Castle Frank subway station south to the Esplanade.
