Get ready! In 2022 Mooredale will be celebrating it's 50th year!!
Back in the mists of time before Mooredale history actually began, there was a marsh described as a "malarial swamp teeming with pestilence and disease" where the Don River emptied into Lake Ontario.
In the first half of the 20th century the governments of the day decided to develop the area, and over the decades it was land filled to provide space for a future big ship harbour and commercial development away from the city center. In the late 1960s, a plan was hatched whereby a protective spit would be constructed to provide a breakwater for the commercial harbour this would later become the Leslie Street Spit.
