Situated directly between Hamilton and Burlington, Aldershot is in a unique setting that makes it highly connected, while still feeling somewhat removed. Its proximity and access to the Royal Botanical Gardens on its eastern border offers a stunning escape within minutes of virtually anywhere in the former village. Established neighbourhoods and parks run along the shore of Lake Ontario; old-growth mature trees are prevalent in these highly sought-after areas. Just north of these older neighbourhoods are areas that have undergone significant transition. New developments, hi-rise condominiums and walkable, street-level retail have changed the landscape, reflecting the significant growth the area has recently experienced. For the commuter, Aldershot is a keenly strategic location. It is home to a GO Station and borders both the QEW and 403; making Toronto, Hamilton, and the Niagara Peninsula accessible options.
