The neighbourhood of Moore Park is named after its developer, John T. Moore. In 1891, John built two bridges in order to incentivize buyers. John was also involved with bringing railway service to the neighbourhood of Moore Park, as well as connecting Moore Park to the Toronto Belt Line Railway, a commuter railway.
Although the neighbourhood suffered some financial setbacks brought on by a recession, Moore Park was completely developed by the 1930s.
Moore Park consists of a combination of large and elegant homes surrounded by lush green space, including Mount Pleasant Cemetery and trails along the Moore Park Ravine. It is conveniently located off of Mount Pleasant Road and is a short drive from Yorkville where you can enjoy fine dining, shopping for designer clothing or exploring the Royal Ontario Museum.
Moore Park real estate is made up of primarily Georgian, English Cottage and Tudor-style homes that were built between 1908 and 1930. Moore Park also includes various townhomes which were built in the 1970s and 1980s. More recently, Moore Park has become a popular neighbourhood for building custom homes.
Moore Park includes properties of various sizes but most lots are quite large. Quite a few of the homes located in the Moore Park neighbourhood are situated on lots with a 50 foot frontage. Many of the homes back onto one of the ravines located within the area of Moore Park. The properties are surrounded with large beautiful trees and the neighbourhood includes its very own tennis and lawn bowling club. The neighbourhood of Moore Park provides a great community for young families, young professionals and empty nesters. Moore Park is considered as one of the top neighbourhoods in Toronto.
