Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960


The Community

Markland Wood is a quiet residential community located between Dundas Street on the south, Burnhamthorpe Road to the north, Etobicoke Creek to the west, and Bloordale park to the east. Markland Drive makes a full circle around  the community crossing Bloor Street twice. We are only few minutes walk from the Mississauga border. Highway's 401, 427 and the QEW/Gardener Expressway are just a short driving distance away. The Markland Wood (Golf) Country Club surrounds the area to the west and south. Neilson Park Creative Arts Centre is just short walk around the corner.

What do visitors see in Markland Wood?

Mature trees blooming in spring, well maintained properties, residents walking their dogs, jogging, cycling, roller blading or talking on the street. There are many green spaces with four schools and two large parks. Witness the children playing. Markland Wood is a wonderful place to raise a family.
