Milton is a fast growing city in southern Ontario. In the decade leading up to 2011, the city’s population grew by almost 56%. As of 2016, there were more than 110,000 residents in the city of Milton and Census Canada estimates this number will increase to 228,000 in just under 15 years.

One reason for Milton’s rapid growth was the affordability of homes in this city. While this has changed somewhat over the last fews—the city is now the 17th most expensive in the GTA—property is still considered relatively affordable when compared to surrounding cities. For instance, a detached home in Milton sells, on average, for about $1 million. A similar home in Toronto would sell for $1.6 million. In Oakville that house would sell for about $1.4 million, on average.

Another reason for the massive population spike is the city’s proximity to major commuter routes. Located just 40 kilometres west of downtown Toronto, Milton is the final stop on the westbound GO Transit commuter train line. Highways 401 and 407 provide fast access to Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton, while stations for Via Rail’s Quebec City-Windsor Corridor passenger trains are easy to get to from Milton. For business travellers, Milton is a short drive to Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Despite all these tactical advantages, the town’s initial start was fairly simple. Jasper Martin, immigrated from Newcastle, England to the area, along with his wife and two sons. He bought 100 acres and created a pond to power his mill. Eventually, others settled in the area, choosing the mill as the centre of their growing town. By 1869, Milton’s population had grown to 1,000 people and by the early 1900’s Milton was known as the place where the socket-head screw was first manufactured. Yet, it would take another 74 years before the current municipal structure was put into place.

The major industries in Milton are automotive, advanced manufacturing, distribution, food production and tourism. In large part, the tourism sector is fuelled by climbers, hikers and mountain-bikers that are destined for the Bruce Trail or Niagara Escarpment. Many of these outdoor enthusiasts stop in at Milton retailers for supplies or refreshments. A growing number of tourists go to Milton just to try out the track cycling velodrome. Known as the Mattamy National Cycling Centre, it was built for the 2015 Pan American Games and sits on a 150-acre plot of land that was originally designated as the proposed future Wilfrid Laurier University campus.

Neighbourhoods

Milton is made up of 20 neighbourhoods. Half of these neighbourhoods are located south of Highway 401, while the other half stretches north of this major commuter route.

For commuters and families looking for newer homes in newly built communities consider looking at the neighbourhoods of Beaty, Coates, Dempsey, Harrison and Clarke. These five areas only began their construction and development in the early 2000s. These neighbourhoods are considered to be part of New Milton.

For new-builds check out the communities of Bowes, Ford, Cobden, and Walker. These areas were surveyed as recently as 2015 and construction will add about a total of about 25,000 to these neighbourhoods.

For character homes and older houses for sale look in the communities of Old Milton and Fallingbrook. For breathtaking views of the Niagara Escarpment make your way to the neighbourhood of Mountainview.

The priciest homes in Milton can be found in three neighbourhoods: Esquesing, with an average property price of $1.5 million; Trafalgar, with an average property price of $1.4 million; and Brookville, with an average property price of $1.3 million.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Milton’s downtown core. Good options include Oakville, Burlington and Brampton. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Bronte Station or Bramalea. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Guelph, Hamilton and Cambridge are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

Whether you’re new to Milton or a longtime resident, one spot that never grows old is Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area. Underneath the lush tree canopy of the 264 hectares of protected lands are hiking trails, hidden caves and limestone cliffs. The park attracts daily dog-walkers, rock-climbers, day hikers and even mountain bikers. There are even 17 campsites for overnight camping—great for anyone who wants to really explore the Niagara Escarpment.  

Rock-climbers will also want to check out Mount Nemo and Kelso Conservation Area, where sport and traditional climbs can easily found using local route and guide books.

If you’re into dirt bicycling try your skills at the Drumquin Park BMX track. The outdoor BMX paradise offers dozens of dirt berms, jumps and quite often plays host to local racing events.

You could also spend a weekend watching the action at the Mohawk Racetrack. The casino and horse track is open every day, typically until 11 p.m., but the live horse races are held Thursday to Monday, with some months offering Tuesday races as well.

For a more casual Saturday morning check out the farmers’ market. Located right on Main Street in downtown Milton, the market is open from 8 a.m. to 12-noon from May until October. It’s a great place to walk, sample and buy local produce and buy locally made goods. Truth be told, most people end up in downtown Milton during the summer. With its small-town character and historic charm, it’s hard not to enjoy a stroll down the street or a meal on a patio.

In July you can combine a visit to the downtown core with the annual chicken wing festival. Held by the Rotary Club of Milton (and held in the downtown Rotary Park), the festival features live bands, a kids zone, arts and crafts vendors and eight different chicken wing vendors. Better still, all proceeds go to support a local charity.

Train lovers need to check out the Halton County Radial Railway. It’s a full-size operating electric railway and museum. Admission includes unlimited rides on the historic train along two kilometres of a scenic track (great for wee ones). Plus there’s a stop at an awesome ice cream as well as display barns and a restored Rockwood train station.

When it’s raining families tend to head to Skedaddle Kids Indoor Play Centre or Wildhagens Adventure Gardens. Skedaddle offers 4,000 square feet of indoor gym including a two-level play structure (complete with slides and climbers). Wildhagen has 6,000 square feet of indoor fun and an acre of outdoor play. There’s a dollhouse world, a Mr Potato Head challenge and a garden of bushes shaped into animals, along with gnomes and other statues.
