The ‘mountain’ is the regional distinction for the southern half of the city that rests on top of the Niagara Escarpment. The scenic edge of the Mountain offers some of the provinces most stunning urban views – overlooking downtown and out over Lake Ontario. On a clear day, the CN Tower and Toronto cityscape are visible. This area is also home to Mohawk College and the Juravinski Cancer Centre – one of Canada’s top cancer research facilities and recognized as a world leader. A number of neighbourhoods on the north end of the Mountain were built during the 1950’s. Typically these are one story brick bungalows that feature spacious, mature-treed lots. Head further to the south, on the other side of the Lincoln Alexander Parkway – the Mountain’s intra-city expressway – new housing developments are a frequent sight. These neighbourhoods offer a relatively quick drive to big box retailer nodes, major arteries and the expressway.
