Lakeview Map

Lakeview is the furthest district in Southeast corner of Mississauga running down on the Etobicoke/Mimico border and along Lake Ontario and up Cawthra Road and along The Queensway to complete it's boundaries.


Much like Port Credit, Clarkson, Lorne Park and Mineola, Lakeview is a district with a rich history as well. It's also catching up to the other districts as it too, is in a redevelopement stage. While lake front views still go for premium here, many investors and those looking to downsize are coming here to build their custom dreamhouses.

The demand here will continue for a long time and builders, investors and homeowners will continue to prosper as the demand for this area is huge and with the GTA expanding the way it is, the demand for such an area with a golf course, lake views and beautiful parks should be around for a while.

There are four large beautiful parks sort of setting the borders of this district. You have Cawthra Park on the west side of the district and two great parks with waterfront views with Marie Curtis Park and Lakefront Promenade Park in the south along Lake Ontario. You also have Etobicoke Valley Park which almost runs down the entire east side of the Lakeview district as well. A nature lover's paradise without having to travel far at all.

Though it's not an area flush with amenities, there are many of the big box stores running along The Queensway which is a 5-10 minute drive away. You also have Sherway mall running along The Queensway and the Dixie Outlet Mall as well if you like to shop.

For the commuter you'll find that you have quick access to the QEW in Lakeview as well as the 427 which can quickly connect you to the 401 if you need to head north of the city and you also have the Go train running along Lakeshore in you need to get downtown Toronto. Unfortunately if you choose to live in Lakeview you are then situated in between Port Credit and Long Branch stations if this is your (excuse the pun) "Go" to means of travel, so you may need to drive, walk or bus it to the Go station.

A lot of the homes here are the typical pre and post-war homes that are common in a lot of the areas along the Lake heading into Toronto, such as Mimico or even in Streetsville. The pre-war homes are closer together and will be a smaller homes to live in but many of these style of homes are undergoing renovating or are being torn down and having a new home built in its place.

The post war homes are a touch larger with the majority of these homes having already been through the renovation process. What's great about these areas are the quiet streets, the mature trees and decent sized lots . You will notice in this area that alot of the style and layouts of the streets are still dated to how things were back in the 50's with the lack of sidewalks and such.



Lakeview isn't for everyone though so if you want an area with more amenities or newer homes then you may want to look at other districts of Mississauga. But if you want to see more options but want to stay closer to Lake Ontario then you may want to check out these surrounding areas.

Although there are not a ton of restaurants and such in Lakeview, I think it will only be a matter of time as the area is in a redevelopment stage and much like like Port Credit and Clarkson there should be a slew of quirky, cool bars and restaurants opening to serve the locals. Here are a few I'd recommend with their  Yelp Yelp Review score as of 01/01/15 to better suit your choice if you choose to check them out.

Lakeview will probably score better with me in another 10 years but that's not to say that it isn't a great place to claim a property, even if it's just for the lot and then to tear down and rebuild. I think once it gets a little further along in the redevelopment of the district it would have more to offer. With a lot of the homes in this area being quite small and/or needing some urbanization of some kind it has sort of an older feel to it which may not appeal to some families.

As mentioned earlier as well, I think that once more bars, restaurants and stores open up (especially along the lake front) it will turn into a place to be, like Port Credit.

Lot sizes here are decent and the neighbourhood it pretty quiet with many home having the mature trees and developed yards, but with lack of sidewalks and other urbanization missing it looks a bit out of place to what most are now accustom to.

The parks here are fantastic and there is a lot of them here with to being situated on the lake so there is a lot here for the nature fan. The schools here have some very good ratings which is definitely a plus as well and the only other downside is that you must drive a little ways to your amenities but once you get there, there is a slew of them.

With that older village essence here and the influx of the urban/suburban rejuvenation, Lakeview is a place to keep an eye on as I mentioned in ten years it could very well be one of "the " districts to be in.
