Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas... especially in Markland Wood!

The lights are up, wreaths are hung on the doors, Christmas trees are decorated and shining in many front windows! This is truly a wondrous season of beauty, joy and excitement!

Each year, Markland Wood residents have an opportunity to share the spirit of Christmas with others who may not be as fortunate through our annual Christmas Caravan.  On Sunday December 14th, we will be making our way through the community to pick up your non-perishable food or gently used clothing.  You may leave them on your porch and our wonderful volunteers will pick them up.  We would love you to join us if you can.  Please meet us at the Markland Plaza at 8:45a.m. that morning and join Santa’s merry band!

Annual Garage Sale

on Saturday, 31 May 2014.

World's Largest Garage Sale!

On Saturday, May 31st, 2014, the Markland Wood Homeowners Association and the whole neighbourhood once again hosted "The World's Largest Community Garage Sale."

"Come one, come all to the greatest bargains in the Greater Toronto Area!"

See a few photos from past Garage Sales held within the Markland Wood community. People come from great distances to shop at this event. "It's like a Garage Sale, Super Store." said one visitor to this annual event.

We were pleased to announce that UsedToronto.com (partners with Metroland Media) were our media sponsor. This meant we had a quarter page ad in two issues of the Etobicoke Guardian and social media exposure through Twitter and Facebook. We had more foot traffic in 2014 than in years prior! Each resident who set up for the Garage Sale that day received balloons from UsedToronto.com and they also had a booth set up. 

Visit soon to see when the 2015 Markland Wood Annual Community Garage Sale will be held. See photos from the May 31st, 2014 World's Largest Garage Sale here!
