The Orchard is definitely one of the most sought-after family neighbourhoods in Burlington. Residents know their neighbours by name and stop to say hello. Buyers looking for a newer home (built post 1998), in a safe and child friendly neighbourhood are definitely going to want to consider The Orchard. Many of the homes you find in this area are 2-storey detached properties, with some even boasting big backyards or backing onto a ravine space. That being said, large yards are not the norm and that’s why you have so much street and sidewalk play in The Orchard.
The community has a strong local identity and sense of community, with awesome connectivity through the Orchard Community Facebook page and “buy/sell” marketplace. You’ll probably sell all your kids’ toys to your neighbour. Commuters will appreciate the fact that the Orchard is a few quick minutes from the 403, the 407 and the Appleby GO Station, while parents of elementary aged children love the fact that they can walk their kids to school, with 5 of Burlington’s best located right in the heart of the neighbourhood.
