Meadowvale was incorporated into the new Town of Mississauga in 1968, but the real development didn’t start until the 1970s (and the neighbourhood has continued expansion ever since).
Meadowvale is known for being a mature neighbourhood with lovely tree-lined streets, large lots, two man made lakes (Lake Aqcuitane and Lake Wabukayne), and one of the city’s largest business parks – home to offices such as: Microsoft, Loblaw, Wal-Mart, Chrysler, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to name a few.
Although the lakes were man made to control flooding and water drainage in the area, they have grown over with greenery and are real staples in the community. Surrounding the lakes are kilometers of trails perfect for walking through on a nice sunny day.
If shopping is more your speed then access to Meadowvale Town Centre will be high up on your list – this power centre boasts over 67 franchise type stores. Due to the location, Meadowvale is also just a short jaunt to Streetsville if boutique shopping and walkability are more favorable.
In terms of transit and commutability, this neighbourhood also has its own Go Train Station and has access to the MiWay bus throughout, with a bus hub at Meadowvale Town Centre. If you’re looking to travel via car, you also have easy access to the 401 and 407 as they run through the north portion of the neighbourhood.
