In the southwest corner of Mississauga along the banks of Lake Ontario is the quaint community of Clarkson Village, where you’ll find the elegant Lorne Park, Lorne Park Estates, and Rattray Marsh Conservation Area communities. Lorne Park Estates was once considered "cottage country" for upper-class residents of Toronto. A century later, Lorne Park’s homes have maintained the area’s historical feel and continue to boast a cottage charm. These rare estates are unique to the Greater Toronto Area and are the perfect escape from city life.
Clarkson was established in 1808 when fifteen-year-old Warren Clarkson moved to the area. He built shops and the post office in the area, and his family worked hard to grow the community. In 1856, Captain Edward Sutherland moved to the neighbourhood and introduced the residents to strawberry and raspberry cultivation. Eventually, Clarkson became the “Strawberry Capital of Ontario.” Lorne Park is fortunate to have this rich history nearby.
Today, Lorne Park is built around the many shops and restaurants directly on Lakeshore Road. The area is home to many waterfront parks, bike trails, Rattray Marsh Nature Sanctuary, and a GO Train station. Both the Bradley Museum and the Benares House, two of Mississauga’s historical museums, are located in Clarkson Village, making it simple for Lorne Park residents to visit.
Lorne Park’s real estate market has always been strong due to the community’s features. The many excellent schools, parks, shops, restaurants, and homes make this area a prime location for families to call home. Located only 23 minutes from Union Station, with access to transit, highways, and Pearson International Airport, Lorne Park is the Greater Toronto Area's most ideal suburban area.
As a primarily residential, suburban area, there aren't many stores and restaurants directly in Lorne Park, but thankfully the neighbourhood is conveniently located near the QEW. It's just a short trip to nearby Lakeshore and Port Credit. In Port Credit, you'll find lots of activities for kids, bars, nightlife, and restaurants.
There is also an abundance of parks, trails, and waterfront spots throughout Lorne Park and extending into the neighboring Clarkson. You're not entirely cut off from essential amenities here, however. The serene village has several upscale grocers and corner stores if you need to stop and grab something quickly at the last minute.
High Park is a popular municipal park that mixes recreational and natural parkland with an abundance of cultural and educational facilities. It’s also home to several gorgeous gardens, playgrounds, and a zoo. Jack Darling Memorial Park is another verdant, green space on Lake Ontario, complete with picnic areas, a dog park, a playground, and a splash pad. Kariya Park in Mississauga is best known for its picturesque Japanese-themed gardens and walkways.
Of course, Lorne Park residents are also blessed to have individual backyard havens with spacious yards fit for a unique oasis. Many residents enjoy owning extensive space to let their children run around and play during the day. And since Port Credit is right around the corner, there are plenty of festivals to attend right around the corner. The local schools in Lorne Park regularly host events and funfairs for residents.
Lorne Park is home to the public Lorne Park Secondary School, which has a strong reputation and is ranked in the top 5% of Ontario schools. Iona Catholic School is also a well-respected institution in the area.
