A large part of the Clarkson neighbourhood borders the lake, and includes the Rattray Marsh, the place where the well-to-do like to NOT-DO (that is, relax). And even if you’re in Clarkson and not living in the Marsh, you likely still have a gorgeous old home. Thus, most of Clarkson can consider themselves upper-middle class and above, and some of the homes in this neighbourhood, obviously, are to drool for. There are working-class pockets of renters along the Lakeshore, however, and also a middle-class community in the northwest.
The nearest GO station to Clarkson is the Clarkson GO, and the travel-time to Union Station is currently anywhere from 22 to 38 minutes, depending on the time of day.
Lorne Park has the strong and healthy reputation of Good Livin’ in Mississauga! The vast majority of the homes in Lorne Park are valued at over $1M. And it really is a beautiful neighbourhood… Let me tell ya, if you’ve purchased a home in Lorne Park, you are generally SATISFIED with your home – hoo boy! Take a drive through the back streets off Indian Road, and you’ll see what I mean. Lorne Park also features the VERY community-oriented sub-neighbourhood Watercolours – it is a lovely neighbourhood, but I haven’t recommended this area to any of my clients because of the schools servicing it.
The nearest GO stations to Lorne Park are the Clarkson GO (22-38 minutes to Union), and the Port Credit GO (23-35 minutes to Union).
Port Credit is an old and historic neighbourhood with luxurious waterfront living available. Also available are a LOT of rental apartments, with the percentage of renters among the 5800 households in Port Credit totalling a whopping 66%! The average household income, then, is a not-surprising 76K.
The nearest GO station to Port Credit is the Port Credit GO, and the travel-time to Union Station is currently anywhere from 23 to 35 minutes, depending on the time of day.

“Mineola, Mineola, Mineola… (sigh)… O to live in Mineola!” …. Shakespeare might have written this line if he ever time-travelled to present-day Mineola, and IF it fit into that iambic pentameter jazz. East Mineola is my second favourite neighbourhood in Mississauga, and West Mineola is my first favourite! Take a drive through the sidewalk-less avenues in Mineola, and a warm, fuzzy feeling will envelop you as you dream of winning the lottery one day and buying a house there. Yep, it’s going to take some dollars to live there… and then, you’ll probably die there.
You can find some sub-$1M’s in West Mineola and a few sub-700K’s in East Mineola, but they will be small, near the train tracks, or beside the highway. The number of households in Mineola is 3100, and only a few (7%) are renters. The average household income in Mineola is 152K.
The nearest GO station to Mineola is the Port Credit GO, and the travel-time to Union Station is currently anywhere from 23 to 35 minutes, depending on the time of day.
