What Makes Milton Great?

Tuesday Oct 29th, 2019


Milton is prosperous, affordable, safe, easy to maneuver, has good weather and outdoor activities, plenty of amenities, and close to larger cities.1

It is one of the friendliest and safest cities in all of Ontario; a place to feel at home.

Although Milton is Canada’s fastest growing community, with a population growth of 30% in the last five years, it holds onto its small-town roots.1

The Milton area has many Conservation Area parks, with hiking trails and locations for a wide variety of activities within its borders. Some of the surrounding parks are:

Crawford Lake


Glen Eden


Hilton Falls where the Bruce Trail can be accessed
