Moore Park, a gem in the heart of the city. Defined by its geographical boundaries – the tracks to the south, the ravine to the west Mt Pleasant Cemetery to the north and David Balfour Park to the east, was developed primarily between 1900 and 1930’s. You will find many of the houses are either English cottage, Georgian or Tudor style. Though some now are giving way to larger or more modern homes creating a patchwork of interesting architecture.
Moore Park is literally a hop skip and a jump from downtown Toronto. At best a ten minute walk to the subway which gets you downtown in 15; a twelve minute walk will get you to a good restaurant; and add another 3 for a choice of coffee houses!
We love the tree lined streets with different sizes and shapes of homes. Walking your dog is a past time which we enjoy, with easy access to the ravine or simply stroll the neighbourhood. People may not know you, but they know your dog... I was often called “Nelson’s mom”. Now it’s Jackson’s mom.
Moorevale Park is the centre of play, located at the corner of Welland and Moore, offering a large playground, wading pool, tennis courts and a baseball diamond. Not to mention the Lawn Bowling in the summer and skating in the winter. There is always something for everyone.
You will find many people who live here now, grew up in the area and have gradually moved back to raise their families with many of the traditions that stand the test of time. Mayfair and the Mayfair parade "rain or shine"; Whitney’s Terry Fox run through the neighbourhood; the annual street parties held each year on different streets. Fond memories in the making. Who knew city living could be so civilized!
