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!
The McCauley neighbourhood in Edmonton Alberta has the old Victorian vintage charm mixed with modern day design. The area is as diverse in culture as it is in ethnicity. The LRT is central for easy access to the city or residents can simply enjoy the walking distance to parks, the river valley, the stadium and the annual summer fair grounds. The neighbourhood is only minutes away from schools, university's , new medical centres, the upgraded Royal Alexander Hospital and the popularly busy Kingway Garden Mall. Major renovations at the Commonwealth Stadium welcomes a state of the art Community Recreation center set to open early 2012. Of course for the football and concert fans, parking will never be an issue with the LRT so close to the stadium. If you are looking for a quiet neighbourhood, rich is diversity and culture from all "neighbourhoods of the world" then you will love your home in McCauley, an affordable, comfortable neighbourhood that is community spirit minded.
