Just north of the village of Terra Cotta, Terra Cotta Conservation Area is among the most environmentally and aesthetically significant areas in the Credit River watershed. A UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Terra Cotta’s 485 acres of valleys, cliffs and bedrock plains, forests, wetlands and streams, represent the best Escarpment habitat in this region of the province. It is becoming an event greater community asset thanks to local volunteer group, the Friends of Terra Cotta.
Our neighbourhood is amazing because we are a 5 min drive to the beach, a 10 min walk to the GO train station and 2 blocks from the highway. We also live in a community where neighbours always stop to say hello, bring in blue boxes and garbage cans for eachother, cut eachothers grass, help to shovel snow, and as first time expecting parents we have a street full of kids who like to be outside to play like we did as kids. It's a community mixed with old and new houses and a sense of community.
I love my neighbourhood because it has brought peacefullness to my family. Recently moved from a previous address which was not only too small for our family of 5 (12 y old G, 7 y old B, 4 y old G) and a 4 year old dog...neighbouring the transcanada highway. (noise, unsafe for kids, house had mold problems) After my husband was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 it made it harder to think we would ever move, then we found a house in the country ( no noise, bigger house, peacefull restoration to life.
My city is the best because it has a little bit of everything
This clock tower was placed down in our beautiful Lamaroux park many years ago but had been part of our city since the 1950's. The clock still works as if it were brand new.
