Welcome to Milton
The beautiful town of Milton is nestled on the Niagara escarpment and conveniently located 40 km away from the heart of downtown Toronto.
The town was founded by the Martin family, who immigrated to Canada in 1918 and set up a gristmill using the power of the 16 Mile Creek. It wasn’t long before their success drew many others to the settlement, and the bustling new town was born. Interesting fact: Milton is named after John Milton, one of the Martin family’s favourite poets.
The housing scene in Milton is as diverse as its population. New developments are currently in the works, including high-rise condos, townhouses and single-family homes. Plus, you’ll find several beautifully upgraded Victorian houses along the streets of Old Milton.
Today, Milton is a modern, fast-growing city full of modern conveniences, but you can still sense its historic charm. If you love history, take a stroll through Mill Pond, which once powered the gristmill that started the town. The art scene rivals that of Toronto and includes local artists, musicians and entertainers. In the downtown core, you’ll find plenty of shops, restaurants, theatres and festivals to keep you busy. Milton is convenient for commuters, with easy access to Toronto, Brampton, Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton.
Milton is home to some of Ontario’s most scenic hiking trails, including Rattlesnake Point and the Bruce Trail. In the winter, you can enjoy the famous ski hills at Glen Eden. In April, Springridge Farms opens its doors, offering farm-fresh produce and delicious fine foods that are ready to eat.
