Top 5 Neighborhoods in Mississauga
Tuesday May 23rd, 2017
Mississauga is a beautiful city in the GTA. Located beside just north of Toronto and having Lake Ontario as one of it's borders makes this city the perfect place to live for just about everyone. Mississauga is home to Pearson International Airport and many multi-national corporation headquarters. In the past few years, Mississauga has become very multi-cultural and has an amazing community of educated individuals and some of the best schools. Thinking of moving to Mississauga? Here are the top 5 neighbourhoods to be living in...
1) Lorne Park
Lorne Park is the ultimate neighborhood to move
in to when looking in Mississauga. The professional, diverse neighborhood boasts so much beauty and a hint of exclusivity, it's easy to want to become a part of it. Lorne Park has an amazing school district with 3 of the top elementary schools and the best high school Mississauga has to offer. This tree lined, picture perfect neighborhood is a pricey though! With almost all properties over a 1 million dollars. Detached, custom, and town homes are all found in this luxury neighborhood. Although taking a walk with family down beautiful streets, Lorne Park is not very convenience friendly and you would probably have to drive to most places. The QEW and Lakeshore make it pretty easy for those commuters. Mississauga's beautiful neighborhood of Lorne Park is not for everyone, but it is a beautiful and worth while investment for those who can call this home.
2) Port Credit
Port Credit is a beautiful neighborhood, where you and the family could take strolls along the streets to the many shops and restaurants or have a night out on the town, all while enjoying the view of Lake Ontario. Weekends bring out the true feel of Port Credit, when all the locals and even tourists visit this bustling little neighborhood. Bordering Lake Ontario and Queen St, just west of Mississauga Rd and just south of Cawthra, this neighborhood definitely has some beauty to offer it's residents. A mixture of homes are available here from older detached homes, semi detached homes, newer custom builds, town homes and condos. Port Credit really has it all. Easily accessible to the QEW and a GO station of it's own makes commutes a breeze both to the east and west. Although this neighborhood does not have a lot of the top schools Mississauga has to offer, it does have Port Credit Secondary School which has special programs for Sci-Tech and Strings. Port Credit has a lot to offer to both families and single professionals and definitely one neighborhood to consider when looking for your home.
3) Central Erin Mills
Central Erin Mills has two major landmarks: Erin Mills Town Centre and Credit Valley Hospital located almost in the centre of this amazing neighborhood. This neighborhood has a lot to offer it's residents. It's ideal for families and commuters and has all the essentials almost right at your door. Central Erin Mills is home to John Fraser Secondary School, one of the best in Mississauga, making this neighbourhood great for families. Conveniently located close to the 401 and 403, the bus terminal at Erin Mills Town Centre and Go Bus stops makes this an easy location for commuters. Central Erin Mills is also conveniently located right beside Streetsville, making all the restaurants, shops and bars easily accessible. The neighborhood has detached homes, semi detached homes and many spacious, condo townhomes. Popularity for Central Erin Mills has been on the rise over the past for years and is definitely worth taking a look!
Streetsville is known as the Village in the City. Streetsville has a small town feel with shops, restaurants and bars centered on the Queen St strip, beautiful walks, green spaces and parks are all around the neighbourhood. Close to the 401 and having it's own Go station that offers both bus and train services, Streetsville is an easy access location. This is an older area in the city and was hard to acquire real estate, but with growing empty nesters, many properties have been bought for tear down and rebuild purposes, allowing this older city to have a newer feel, many older properties still exist for those who still want that unique home. Custom homes, bungalows, older homes and even town homes and low rise condos can be found in this here. Streetsville is home to Vista Heights Public School, a top ranking school offering a French Immersion program. Seasonal festivals and events are great for families to enjoy either directly on Queen St or at Vic Johnson Park. This neighborhood is greatly diversified with professional families and will have you feeling as if this was your own little town.
5) Churchill Meadows
Located in west Mississauga from the 403 along Winston Churchill Blvd and Nineth Line to Britannia Rd W. One of the newer neighborhoods in Mississauga, it has a great mix of real estate. Most of the homes have a modern fell with beautiful exteriors and well laid out interiors. Town homes, low rise condos, work/live developments, detached homes and luxury homes can all be found in Churchill Meadows. This multi-cultural neighborhood is great for families with children. The neighborhood has newer public and Catholic schools that show promising results in the Fraser Institute reports. Convenient for traveling with the 407 and 403 at it's borders and having just about everything within walking distance for this beautifully thought out neighborhood. Being a newer development in Mississauga, having a great community layout and growing amenities for the residents, this neighborhood's prices were on the rise but are now leveling out to market average.
