Moor Park is a private residential estate in the Three Rivers District of Hertfordshire, England. Located approximately 15.5 miles (24.9 km) northwest of central London and adjacent to the Greater London boundary, it is a suburban residential development.
It takes its name from Moor Park, a country house which was originally built in 1678–9 for James, Duke of Monmouth, and was reconstructed in the Palladian style circa 1720 by Giacomo Leoni. It is built on what used to be an area of Ruislip Moor, which is where the name Moor Park originates. The house and grounds are now occupied by Moor Park Golf Club.
The area borders Northwood in Greater London to the south. The estate consists of around 6 square miles (16 km2) of gated, private roads; extending from Ruislip Woods through to Northwood, and finishing at Merchant Taylors' School. The majority of the area lies in the Northwood post town and the HA6 postcode district. The surrounding neighbourhood consists mostly of upscale houses, some dating back to the original 1930s developments. Moor Park has large Muslim, Jewish, Sikh and Asian communities, and many homeowers commute to London via Moor Park tube station on the Metropolitan line of the London Underground.
