This is the fourth segment of a 19-part blog-series that showcases Mississauga's unique commmunities. We realized that a lot of our clients are coming from outside Mississauga, and while knowing the top schools is important, they have asked for more information about the individual communities these schools reside in and the real estate available. This is an important criteria not lost on us as finding a neighbourhood that fits your lifestyle is extremely important. We've already ranked the communities based on school zones (which you can find here), so now let's take a little bit of time to get to know our communities. Next up: Clarkson-Lorne Park!

Final Thoughts on Clarkson-Lorne Park
Clarkson-Lorne Park is one of the oldest communities in Mississauga and while they share a border, the real estate available is quite different. Lorne Park is mainly filled with very expensive properties and known for its lavish multimillion dollar homes. Clarkson is a bit more of the classic older-style community where you can find much more affordable housing. Clarkson is not devoid of its multimillion dollar properties either, but it's not quite as glamourous overall. Both communities are absolutely great places to live for those that love parks, trails, and the water. It's a very active community and with the popular Port Credit right next door, there are tons and tons of entertainment options for the whole family.
We've spoken about the difference in school zones and it has to be said again. If you can find a property of similar value in Clarkson or Lorne Park, then go with Lorne Park. Both communities are great options but if your priority is schooling, Lorne Park can't be beat in Mississauga.
