East Gwillimbury has a cottage-country style setting that gives you plenty of ways to unwind at nearby parks, hiking trails, conservation areas and local marinas where you can launch your boat.
Originally a village found along concession roads used by Quaker settlers, Queensville was built in 1843. This cute and charming town has an original rural town feel that is usually only found in remote Ontario communities. This community will be home to significant growth over the next few years with the construction of new homes and schools.
East Gwillimbury recently expanded the Green Lane Corridor to attract more businesses and jobs whilst building new homes and transit options in the area. The town has also seen Highway 404 open an exit/entrance at Green Lane and Queensville Side Road leading all the way to Georgina. A Secondary Plan for future expansion is already in the planning stages and it is expected to rival that of Ontario’s greatest towns.
