About Moore Park
Moore Park sits sandwiched between the neighbourhoods of Rosedale and Leaside, bordering St.Clair Avenue and Mount Pleasant. Not a bad place to be sandwiched – this is an upscale neighbourhood, surrounded by equally upscale ‘hoods.
Built by John T. Moore, the careful planning of ‘Moore Park’ included tasteful marketing of the area to this city’s wealthiest. In 1891 there were even two new bridges built to encourage investment in the area: the original steel bridge on St.Clair (over the Vale of Avoca), and the original wooden bridge on Moore Avenue (over Spring Valley Ravine). These bridges add a scenic quality to the already pastoral and suburban characteristics of Moore Park.
Yes, there are grand homes (mainly Victorian, Edwardian and new builds) in Moore Park, but the area’s ‘secret sauce’ is in the elegant mixture of urban and suburban living. Residents of Moore Park are gifted with greenery, ravine trails, well-kept gardens, larger residential lots, wide streets, winding walking trails, quiet (low-traffic) roads, and beautiful parks–but also get the benefits of remaining at the hub of city living. Locals are just arm’s reach from major roadways, the TTC, top-notch shopping, restaurants, cafes, pubs, and more, yet most traffic winds around (not through) the area, making Moore Park a popular spot for families to settle down in. Street hockey, anyone?
A beautiful place to live, Moore Park real estate is highly coveted. Naturally, this is an expensive area of Toronto, but you will be hard-pressed to find any ‘monster homes’. Neighbourhood homes, although impressive, stand subtly amidst an idyllic backdrop. If you’re willing to pay a little bit (sometimes a lot) more for your home (and able to) we recommend looking at Moore Park.
Popular nearby hot spots include (but are not limited to): Moore Park Ravine (takes you all the way to the Brick Works!), Cava (on St.Clair), Union Social (on St.Clair), and the Black Camel (Rosedale).
