The Moss Park neighbourhood was originally part of a 100 acre Park Lot owned by one of early Toronto's wealthiest citizens in the 1800's. It later became the heart of Toronto's industrial area, home to large factories and the densely packed homes of the workers they employed. Ultimately, Moss Park is now one of Toronto's largest public housing projects. There are three double wing high-rise apartment buildings and one single-tower apartment building, all well set back from the street and surrounded by greenspace and an internal network of roadways.

Moss Park is bounded by Queen Street East on the South, Parliament Street on the East, Shuter Street on the North and Jarvis Street on the West.
