My neighbourhood is overflowing with outdoor fun. My friends and I have miles of wilderness to explore whether it is by horse, quad, a walk with the family or even geocaching! If we want to get out to active city life it is just 10 minutes drive away. We live within minutes of the fantastic West Lake Provincial Park, and just a short drive from there is Fort George canyon Provincial Park, a historical site with a fantastic 5 km hike to the rapids of the Fraser River. I love living here because of the friendly and helpful neighbours, the wonderful wildlife that comes around every now and then, and the accessibility to anything I decide to do as I walk out my door today.
I think Ridgeway is the greatest neighbourhood.of all. Our neighbours are the most friendly and helpful and will pitch in to give a hand, the community centre is always putting on functions throughout the year to keep everyone involved.
Clarkson Ontario is a great place to live. Why? I'll tell you why! As one of the oldest settlements on the Lake, Clarkson has the charm of a small village. It is situated on the shores of Lake Ontario between the newly renovated Port Credit and the well preserved downtown of Oakville. Clarkson has under gone it's own make-over and with still more touch ups to be done, Clarkson will rival the new hot spot, or 'place to be seen', Port Credit. I grew up on Balboa Drive, Mississauga, right on the banks of the Lake and 40 years later I am back. Clarkson has every amenity a community needs and then some. Many of the businesses that grace the downtown 'core' have been serving its people for decades; Dairy Queen, The Barn, the Animal Hospital on Clarkson Road south, Tim Hortons on Southdown, and the wonderful family businesses of Michael's Back Door, Michael's Hair Salon and La Felicita. Living in Clarkson makes you forget that you are living in the Metropolis of Mississauga!
