The Lowdown on Moore Park

Your Typical Neighbour

Your typical Moore Park neighbor is not unlike your typical Rosedale neighbor. After all, the two areas essentially blend seamlessly together. Residents of Moore Park are wealthy, generally educated, well-travelled, and for the most part...quite stylish! Neighbours range from professionals, to families, and a more elderly demographic - as people tend to hold on to their homes (there’s very little reason to want to move).

What We

We love the location of Moore Park. The area’s proximity to ravines, biking trails, and parks while being at the cusp of Yonge Street, Mount Pleasant, Bloor Street, and St.Clair - make this are a real winner in our books. Oh, and did we already mention the gorgeous homes and tree-lined streets? Yes, yes, I think we did….

What We Don't

Well, clearly we don’t like that it’s not cheap--the average Torontonian will not be able to afford homes here. (Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone could move to Moore Park?) It’s also on the sleepy side if you’re a younger person looking for more city action. But honestly, you’re so close to so much that this city has to offer...it is very hard to find something we truly ‘don’t like’ about Moore Park.

Expensive, but for reason. Just like Rosedale, homes in Moore Park are generally very old, but updated, elegant mid-large sized brickstones that are well-kept with extreme pride of ownership. Often the stately grounds are manicured by teams of professionals, making warmer months very scenic - flawless greenscapes as far as the eye can see. Luckily, Moore Park’s local committees have closely monitored new builds in the area to ensure that a certain quality, class, and charm are considered with any new development.

Transit is best accessed along Yonge, Mount Pleasant, Bloor, or St.Clair avenues - for driving. Rosedale station is around the corner, as well as Summerhill and Bloor Stations just a short walk or quick drive’s distance away. Feel like biking downtown? Just hop on your bike and take the Moore Park biking trails...there’s nothing to stop you! Except, well, weather of course….

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 neighborhood, 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 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 live, homes in Moore Park are 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).
