The Lowdown on Applewood

Your Typical Neighbour

With a higher than average kid count, your typical neighbour in Applewood is likely to be a family with the potential for its members to have been born outside of Canada.

What We

Closeness to Toronto and relative affordability - bordering on Etobicoke in Applewood’s east side makes for a short jaunt to the city AND when comparing to some of Mississauga’s other southern neighbourhoods, detached homes here can still be found for a relatively affordable price.

What We Don't

Although it’s close to Toronto, transit options into the city are not the best. Add in an industrial type feel and the neighbourhood can be a little less than “homey” depending on what pocket you’re in.

Property Statistics in Applewood

The Applewood neighbourhood in Mississauga was originally developed in the 1950s, so there are many homes reminiscent of that era here: bungalows, traditional two-storey, back splits and side splits line the majority of the streets in Applewood. For the more price conscious buyer, there are quite a few options for condos and condo townhouses - especially close to the intersection of Dixie and Bloor. That said, some of these complexes have been known for a history of financial difficulties within the condo corporations, so make sure to always do a thorough review of the status certificate before you consider a purchase.

About Applewood

Applewood is one of Mississauga’s oldest neighbourhoods – developed in the 1950s this neighbourhood has grown into a cultural mecca for the city, and because of this, the community can be very tight-knit. The pocket of Applewood Acres (one of three main pockets in Applewood: Applewood Acres, Applewood Heights and Applewood Hills) is known for the special events hosted by the Applewood Homeowners Association at the Westacres Park, with their most known event being the barbeque and free swim which is amazing for families – typically the association will bring out bouncy castles, face painters, and an obstacle course (to name a few) for the residents to enjoy.

For the nature enthusiasts, there are plenty of biking and walking trails to choose from down by the Etobicoke Creek that runs south through Applewood out to Lake Ontario. And for the shopping enthusiasts, you can find an industrial park with many shops and outlets along the stretch of Dundas from Dixie to Cawthra, with the Mississauga Chinese Centre (over 100,000 square feet of shopping) being a destination for travellers and locals alike.

Miway bus transportation is available throughout Applewood, but for the Toronto commuter the Dixie Go Train might be a more viable option (although it’s not one of the most serviced Go lines, it can still get you downtown without having to fight traffic on the Gardiner). Another option for commuters since Applewood is so close to the Toronto border might be using the Bloor subway line to get into the core, although the closest station stop would likely be Kipling Station.

Transit aside, schools are definitely a factor for many Applewood residents (which makes sense when we look at the demographics that show a higher number of children per household in this part of the city!). There are good scoring schools in each age range in the Applewood neighbourhood: Burnhamthorpe Public School, Silverthorne Public School and Applewood Heights Secondary School to name a few – and the scores in this area, in general, are showing an upward trend, which is always a great sign for the neighbourhood.
