Moore Park is an upscale and relatively small pocket of homes, bounded on the west by the Avoca Ravine and the Moore Park Ravine on the east. With so much nature at its doorstep, it's not surprising that Moore Park is one of Toronto's most sought after neighbourhoods.
Most Moore Park homes were built in the early part of the 20th century on tree-lined streets, many backing onto the ravines or on quiet cul-de-sacs.
The neighbourhood was named for John Thomas Moore, the original developer, who was also involved in the Belt Line Railway, Toronto’s first commuter train, which ran down the Moore Park Ravine.
Moore Park residents have their pick of 3 great shopping areas so at least one is bound to be within walking distance – Yonge & St Clair, Mount Pleasant Road in Davisville Village and Bayview Avenue in Leaside. All three are known for their wide range of independent stores and popular restaurants. The weekly Farmers Market at the Evergreen Brickworks is also close by and attracts customers from all over the city.
