Best Neighbourhoods in Mississauga

You’re probably thinking of moving to Mississauga and wondering where the best place to call home is, aren’t you? If you are, then you’ve come to the right place! Below I’ve listed my Top 7 Mississauga Neighbourhoods as a long-time Mississauga resident and real estate agent.

Warning: Not all pockets or streets are created equal

There are some areas of the best neighbourhoods in Mississauga that you want to aim for or avoid. Even as much as one street can make the difference between a great experience and a bad experience.

To know where to go or to avoid you need a local real estate agent on your side. So, if you have questions, comments or concerns please contact me or click the button below to get started!



Port Credit has what everyone looks for in a neighbourhood – convenience. On top of that it continues to remain one of Mississauga’s most desirable neighbourhoods thanks to its proximity to the Lakefront, its collection of fun shops, bars, and restaurants, and its easy access to Toronto by both car and public transportation. Port Credit is one of those “villages” that used to dominate Mississauga and it’s the type of vibrant community that everyone is craving for once again.

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. It’s 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 and that’s why it’s one of the most attractive neighbourhoods in Mississauga.

Meadowvale is a great family neighbourhood. It’s filled with parks and trails and is one of Mississauga’s most active neighbourhoods. Along with the natural beauty of Meadowvale, it also boasts some of the most affordable detached housing in Mississauga. Meadowvale is also home to one of Mississauga’s major GO stations and also provides easy access to Highway 401. For the average family looking for a safe, active, affordable neighbourhood, Meadowvale fits the bill on all accords.

Think of Lisgar as Meadowvale’s younger sibling. The two neighbourhoods share a border and often blend into each other. The difference is that Lisgar is a more newly developed, planned neighbourhood. Developed in three phases over the better part of 15 years, Lisgar is one of Mississauga’s youngest neighbourhoods. Tucked away in the very Northwest corner of Mississauga, Lisgar has seen young families flock to its neighbourhood. With its ideal mix of affordability, distance to public transportation, and overall quiet, picturesque streets, Lisgar has seen a huge surge in demand and home prices have quickly followed suit.

If Mineola is one of Mississauga’s ultimate “move up” neighbourhoods then Lorne Park is king of the hill. Lorne Park is often see by most as Mississauga’s most prestigious neighbourhood. On the weekend, families will take a stroll or drive through its gorgeous tree-lined streets that boast a mix of luxury million dollar, custom build, and quaint cottage-style homes. When you enter Lorne Park you immediately recognize the pride of ownership of its residents. It carries with it a very prestigious yet down-to-earth balance. You don’t feel out of place, but rather want to immediately join this fantastic neighbourhood.

Central Erin Mills has settled nicely into one of Mississauga’s mature neighbourhoods. It is now what would be considered a “move up” neighbourhood with most of the homes in the area being traditional 2-storey detached. This has driven younger families to look at its more affordable neighbours. However, redevelopment of the Erin Mills Town Centre and the surrounding areas will transform this neighbourhood into a City Centre light for North Mississauga. Condo projects by Daniels and Pemberton have already launched and will give residents more condo options to choose from.

Dubbed “The Village in the City” Streetsville is defined by its “Main Street” downtown strip and older, ecletic mix of housing. It’s essentially the Port Credit of the North with a bit tighter sense of community which is vibrant and hosts numerous events throughout the year including the Santa Claus Parade in the winter and Bread and Honey Festival in the summer. Victoria Park is tucked nicely behind Main Street and there is also a great trail and park for kids and families to explore. Streetsville has something for all ages and walks of life.

    1. Hi Miqdad,

      As far as I know there is no definitive border for Clarkson and Lorne Park. Some people have different opinions of where one ends and the other begins. I’ve always been of the opinion that the soft border would be Clarkson Road. So anything east of Clarkson would be considered Lorne Park. However, some consider anything east of Southdown to be Lorne Park because that puts you into the Lorne Park school district.

      Pengilley is east of Clarkson, but just barely, so I think you’ll find some consider it Lorne Park and some consider it to still be Clarkson. In the end, it doesn’t really matter. Both neighbourhoods tend to blend into each other at a certain point and you can certainly tell when you’ve moved onto the more west end of Clarkson as the home types certainly change.
