Many west end neighbourhoods close to downtown have their waterfront view obstructed by the Gardiner highway. Mimico, on the other hand, is south of the highway and right on the lake. Mimico’s overall feel is a small town in a big city. Surrounded by the Humber Bay Park Complex which is comprised of 138 ha. of park space divided into two large parks, one on the east (Humber bay Park East) and one on the west (Humber bay Park west). The park complex accommodates the Mimico Cruising Club, Etobicoke Yacht club, Humber Valley Sailing Centre. Humber Bay Park West features dog off leash area while Humber Bay Park East includes bike trails and a butterfly habitat made up of a diverse array of native plants and shrubs. Along with the conservation efforts being made to keep the lakeside as natural as possible there is a blooming arts community. Lakeshore Arts plays a key role in keeping community arts events going along with the growing number of local galleries and farmers markets that occur during the summer.
It’s a great place to live for many first-time buyers and empty nesters and pet lovers! There are many condominium complexes to choose from some of which include Waterscapes at Waterview, Beyond the Sea, Nautilus and Ocean Club Tower.
