Where’s Mineola Located?
Mineola is located in south Mississauga east of Port Credit, west of Lakeview and south of Cooksville separated by the QEW. Mineola is part of the desirable, yet often unattainable, set of south Mississauga neighbourhoods.
The Neighbourhood of Mineola
Mineola is one of Mississauga’s ultimate “move up” neighbourhoods. Its streets boast multi-million dollar homes, custom builds, and give off that “cottage in the city” type feel. Mineola is ideally located with access to the City Centre, QEW, and Lakeshore within minutes, but is tucked away, quiet, and tranquil. Mineola has a great balance of picturesque streets, parks and access to the Credit River. That’s why it’s one of the most attractive neighbourhoods in Mississauga.
Mineola shares most of its lifestyle aspects with neighbouring Lorne Park and Port Credit. You go to the Lakeshore to enjoy the restaurants and shops and to the gorgeous streets and parks that fill the old cottage getaways of old Mississauga.
I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that Mineola real estate expensive. However, not every home in Mineola is a $1.5 million custom build home. There are plenty of pockets of more standard homes and inbetween all the custom builds you’ll find the older bungalows that haven’t been replaced yet.
Mineola is not completely an exclusive enclave of millionaires. There are plenty of homes that are affordable however the prices for them are way above what you would find in other areas because the lot values of these places are sky-high due to the demand that has built up for people to purchase them and build their dream home.
In reality, Mineola will continue to get more expensive. There’s really no other way to put it. But for those who aren’t afraid of a little handy work, there are older-style bungalows that can be had for under $700K. You will definitely be sacrificing space and luxury at first, but getting into this neighbourhood alone is a great investment.
Simply put, Mineola is one of Mississauga’s richest neighbourhoods. What you’ll find is here a mixture of older, long-time residents (those first here when Mississauga was built and homes passed down) and mature professionals and their families making their dream move.
Do you care about school quality? Then you’ve chosen the best neighbourhood possible. Mineola boasts the #1 and #3 BEST elementary schools in Mississauga! On top of that, your children will then move on to Port Credit SS, one of the best secondary schools in Mississauga. If you want the best possible education in Mississauga, Mineola should be at the top of your list!
Public Elementary Schools include:

Commuting & Retail in Mineola
Located in the south end of Mississauga, it’s an easy commute for those wanting to stay close to all parts of Toronto with a GO station located just off Lakeshore. You have ideal access to the QEW and City Centre as well.
Now, you can’t walk to the places you can in Port Credit, but a short drive connects you with more of Mississauga than if you were further south in the city. Sometimes that extra 5-10 minutes can make all the difference in the world. Don’t expect any big box stores nearby…you’ll have to venture out of this area to do the grocery shopping or hit the hardware store.
