Markland Wood is an Etobicoke neighbourhood which was developed in the 1960s from a tract of land that Mark Cavotti bought from the Silverthorn family. With their founding history well remembered, the residents of Markland Wood bring the same commitment to the spirit and strength of their community. Home to many single-family houses and several quality schools, it’s a family-friendly neighbourhood with a small but growing scene of Etobicoke condos.
Easily the biggest draw of the neighbourhood is the community spirit, brought together by the Markland Wood Homeowners Association (MWHA). The MWHA hosts a variety of events throughout the year from an Environmental Clean-Up Day in April to September’s Markland Wood Community Social, held at Markland Wood Golf Course. They also publish one of Toronto’s oldest community newspapers, featuring ten annual issues. So whether you’re looking to buy or rent, the Etobicoke homes in Markland Wood offer an entrance into a vibrant, engaged community that’s hard to find elsewhere. As for shopping and dining, there are small commercial plazas sprinkled throughout the area, plus residents can pop over to Cloverdale Mall or Sherway Gardens where you’ll find many boutiques and professional services. The Neilson Park Creative Centre is a cool place to check out art courses and special events, while nearby Centennial Park offers a wide range of recreation activities and a beautiful outdoor green space.
Three main roads heading east and west from Burnhamthorpe Road to Dundas Street West provide easy connections from Markland Wood to the rest of the city. Highway 427 can zip drivers north to the 401 and south to the Gardiner Expressway, while local bus routes connect with the Bloor-Danforth subway line.
