Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, for people who enjoy a more tranquil setting and the beauty of a natural surroundings. Exceptional Georgian, Tudor and English Cottage style homes are built on quiet, safe streets; built in the early 20th century these homes are very sought after. The Yonge, St Clair and Davisville shopping centres are close by and for those that are thinking about moving to the neighbourhood with children, Moore Park has some top rate public and private schools.

The Moore Park

Holding prominent positions in both business and political arenas, the town was named after its founder - John Thomas Moore of Markham. Well-to-do buyers are attracted to the beauty of this neighbourhood which means that Moore Park becomes one of the most sort after districts to live in Central Toronto. Bricked constructed, two-storey and detached is the most normal type of home available in this area. The district does have more affordable housing though, as you head north towards Moore park housing tends to be town homes and apartments.

If you are a nature enthusiast, you will without doubt enjoy watching birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat, strolling along the 8 kilometre Moore Park Ravine foot path that passes through the Rosedale Ravine, the Mt Pleasant cemetery, the Lower Don Trail, and the old Don Valley Pressed Brickworks.

You won't be disillusioned either if you go on one of the trails through the beautiful Chorley Park, which overlooks the Don River Valley and has a wealth of trails for those that enjoy days out in fresh air. Community activities throughout the year are one of the central points of this wonderful park whose history can be read about on the 1975 Historical Board plaque. Clearly, Moore Park Neighbourhood is one of the most wanted in GTA.

Another decent park in the area is Riverdale, this park brings in families who enjoy spending time together and doing things together. In Riverdale Park, you’ll also come across the municipally operated Riverdale Farm, where you can take your kids and watch demonstrations of daily chores.

Have a wander along to Mooredale House, located at 146 Crescent Road; this community centre offers lots to keep you and your children entertained from music programs to summer day camps and all manner of fitness activities.

A final note on this sort after community goes to shopping; Yonge and St Clair or the Mount Pleasant and Davisville shopping area are certainly popular with those that already live here. Yonge and St Clair accommodates a wide variety of business and medical services, boutiques, and food catering to the busy professional.
