In the 1600’s the Lakeview area was occupied by the Iroquois also known as the Mississauga Indians. Their territory stretched from Niagara River on the South to Georgian Bay on the North. In the 1600’s the Iroquois, who were allied with the French, were attacked by Six Nations Confederacy, who were allied with the Dutch and English. The Iroquois’ large group successfully drove out the invaders.In 1806 the Mississauga Indians and British government entered into a land purchase treaty which opened up a new area for colonization.Very soon surrounding forests were converted to modern days Long Branch, Lakeview, Port Credit, Clarkson, Oakville, Bronte and Burlington Communities. Today Mississauga’s many streets carry the names of the first settlers and land owners.
As the World War One was approaching in the 1900’s, Lakeview started to change from an agricultural to an industrial and suburban community. On the ground of the now decommissioned Lakeview Generating Station was the first Canadian airport.In 1968 Lakeview became a part of the City of Mississauga and started a new life. Lakeviews new boundaries were created by Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) on July 5, 2011. These boundaries include: Alderwoods and Long Branch on the East, Dixie to the North, Mineola and Port Credit on the West and Lake Ontario to the South.
The Dixie Value Mall is probably the most recognized outlet mall in Mississauga. It is located in the Lakeview community, on the southwest side of the QEW and Dixie Road intersection. Another well known place in Mississauga is Dairy Cream which is located along Lakeshore Road just east of Cawthra Road. People from all over Mississauga and surrounding areas go there for cool frozen yogurt. If you are planning on going there on a nice day, be prepared to wait for your cool treat.
The Lakeview Community offers many parks and facilities along Lake Ontario including Port Credit Yacht Club, Waterfront Trail, Lakefront Promenade Park and Marina trail. The Waterfront trail is a very active recreation area particularly during the warmer months where many outdoor enthusiasts go out to relax. You will find joggers, walkers, cyclists, and roller-blades. Along the many parks south of Lakeshore Road, you can find people having picnics, kite and wind surfing, fishing, and boating just to name a few. This community offers plenty of places to relax and take in some fresh air.
The present housing market in the Lakeview area is very varied. It includes both old and new renovated bungalows, semidetached and luxury custom built homes, in many cases houses have large lots and many worth well over one million dollars. North of Lakeshore Road is a mixture of old and new condominium apartments, townhouses, semis and 2-storeys houses.
