Location is extraordinarily important, and the neighbourhood at Lake Shore and Parklawn is one of the best locations you’d ever hope to find. Breathtaking views of Lake Ontario and the Toronto skyline coexist with nature trails and parks. Minutes from downtown Toronto, the area has the feel of a small town in a big city. But there’s another sense in which location is important, something that people will always pay more for, and that is a location that has easy access to efficient transportation. The premium on ease of transit has already made an impact on demand for condos, and that demand will continue to grow.
Fortunately, the Lake Shore/Parklawn neighbourhood is a location that provides good access to public transit, highways that facilitate access to the city, walkways that encourage pedestrian traffic and superior biking trails. The Martin Goodman Trail, a 56 km cycling, jogging and inline skating path along the waterfront and through scenic parkland provides safe and challenging outdoor recreation. The trail traverses the entire lakeshore from one end of the city to the other, from Humber Bay in the west to the Rouge River in the east. With 730 km of trails around Lake Ontario, you’ll discover something new every time you set out for a walk or a ride. Exceptionally pedestrian friendly, there are few things you could need that aren’t within walking distance. Grocery stores, banks and drug stores are all close, and there are plenty of family restaurants along the lakeshore. You’ll love the walking trails and bike paths.
Living in this neighbourhood, you are located near the Gardiner Expressway. The expressway makes for an easy commute to downtown Toronto or to the Western Greater Toronto Area. It’s ten minutes to downtown Toronto and only a fifteen-minutes drive to the Pearson International Airport. And there’s even a public transit stop directly in front of the building. It’s only moments to shopping along the Queensway, with convenient access to major highways, including Highway 427 as well as Queen Elizabeth Way. Sherway Gardens, on of Ontario’s premier shopping malls, is a seven-minute drive west. Public transport offers even more options for travel. You can get to downtown and the financial district via the 501 and 504 TTC streetcars. You can travel by streetcar right to Yonge and King or Yonge and Queen. The Mimico GO Station train is part of the GO Transit network located in the Etobicoke area of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is a stop on the Lakeshore West line train service, and is a great public transit option. Car sharing is convenient and available via Zipcar. One condo community even provides its residents their own private bus service to downtown Toronto and shopping malls. Whether you’re driving, taking the train, riding the bus, sharing a car or walking and biking, you’ll find the transportation options in the Lake Shore/Parklawn make living here convenient, accessible—and exceptional.
