Lisgar Map

The Lisgar district is in the farthest northwest corner of Mississauga and I like to call it Milton's ugly cousin as it's one district you can go through to get to Milton by travelling down Derry Road to get there or for quick access to the 407 as well.


Being on the outskirts of Mississauga and being close to the highway as well there tends to be a fair bit of "Greenspace" in Lisgar. There is Trelawny Woods Park and Lisgar Fields Park very close to each other as well. Both areas boast more for sport than anything. You will find soccer fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball diamonds and some playgrounds and splash pads for the kids. Both are close to two of the schools in the area as well.

Osprey Marsh is also located here in the south end of Lisgar, but it really isn't much. Its history indicates it was originally used as an area to catch the stormwater and use to be prone to flooding. The trail there is mainly used for biking, waking and running and it's still nice enough to take a walk around here and take in some of the nature.

There are good amenities in Lisgar but it lacks any kind of nightlife so you will find yourself driving somewhere outside of this district to be entertained. Milton isn't that far for a theatre or outlet mall or you can drive up to Aquitaine for a few chain restaurants like, The Keg, Moxie's and Wild Wing to name a few.

It's one of the more affordable areas in Mississauga for young families and couples/ young professionals starting out. It is a safe and relatively quiet area to live as well.

You are close to the 407 and 401 and the Lisgar Go station is just north at the top of the Lisgar district.

There is not a lot of diversity in the style of the homes here as they are affordable and not very old, roughly around 20-25 years on average. With that you can get a decent sized home that will have many of the amenities that are sought after today, but the home may be in need of a few upgrades to make it a touch more modern to look at. With them being on the younger side for an age of a home you will also notice the lot sizes here tend to be just a touch smaller than in other areas as they were a bit more generous back in the day.

The same issues lie here as in Meadowvale, in that I find at peak traffic times it can feel a bit congested as those coming back from Milton tend to use Derry road, Winston Churchill gets very busy with those going home to Georgetown and those are coming in from the 401 really help clog up the area.


If Lisgar doesn't do it for you and you would rather find a home with a little more of it's own style then you might want to check out some of these areas that are close or surrounding Lisgar.

*Rankings Come From the Fraser Institute 2012-13 *
(Please note:  schools that do not have a rating on the Fraser Institute need a miniumum number of students (15) from the grades from which the data is drawn from and in some cases the available data is insufficient to properly rank the school getting them a rank of this N/A. Again rank isn't everything as there are many factors to consider and the score should be used in conjuction with having meetings with teachers, administrators, support staff, as well as your child and other parents to better the overall selection factor)


As I mentioned earlier that you can get a good house for your money in this district but with most things that come with a good home price there is always something you must give up. Such as Meadowvale Village with the airplane noise for example. Your sacrifice here is quieter area with not much going on and homes that are a little more "cookie-cutter" than original asides for one area which is called Trelawney Estates where there are a bunch of larger detached homes all built on small courts which make for a very unique subdivision in this area (you can see it clearly in the middle of the map). Generally the feeling is your value might not mature as fast as other areas you may purchase a home in with these current factors that this area lacks. But who knows, with the GTA rapidly expanding most established areas should do well for themselves.

Semi-Detached and Town houses - $320,000 - $500,000
Detached - $520,000 - 700,000+


To me the main attraction to the Lisgar district is the prices of the homes in the area and what you can get them for. There are some decent parks here and the schools although relatively new, have some of the best rankings for their age. There are also enough amenities to meet your day to day needs, but this area lacks restaurants and any kind of nightlife as well. I will say that it is definitely a safe and quiet area for those that want to raise a family and it is a good choice for those reasons. You also get close access to the 407 and the 401 is maybe 5 minutes away, which is good if you are a commuter and the Lisgar Go station is just outside the north boundary of Lisgar if you use public transit.

You will have to put a little money into your home to maybe modernize it a touch to keep up with todays expectations and many of the homes in this area lack a bit of character as they are all a fair bit alike style-wise. I also find the area tends to get a bit backed up with traffic at key times of the day with those heading to Milton and Georgetown using the key roads that surround Lisgar. Some of the schools here have some great ratings on the Fraser institute as well.

All in all you have to take the good with the bad, but for a young professional or young families just starting out you can get a good home here to start out in a safe and friendly area of Mississauga.
