Mississauga has gone to the dogs.

Those who love dogs will find plenty of space in Mississauga’s parks and trails to walk their furry friends.

And while there are great, pet-friendly spots in Brampton and Caledon, Peel’s best neighbourhoods for pets are all in Mississauga, according to Wahi, a digital real estate platform.

Wahi named three top areas in Peel Region for four-legged friends in their Where to Live 2023 report.

Here are the best neighbourhoods in Peel for pets, according to Wahi:


The Applewood community is known for its open green space. There are many footpaths and spots for relaxing under the shady trees in this neighbourhood’s dog-friendly parks. The Applewood Trail, starting from Applewood Hills Park, is one great example.

Those looking to find a home in Applewood will find prices have come down. The median selling price for a home is $969,000, according to Wahi. Properties are selling for $29,000 (three per cent) under the asking price.

And homebuyers have some time to make a choice. Homes are staying on the market for an average of 33 days.


Lakeview is known for it’s lush greenery and scenic lakefront views. The park trails that line the shoreline of Lake Ontario are perfect for a stroll.

A 64-acre conservation area will bring more opportunities for walking, once it is finished in 2025.

And with a new, large development — Lakeview Village — coming, there will be more chances to live here.

But lakeside living comes at a price. The median selling price in Lakeview is $1.2 million and homes are only staying on the market for about eight days. Properties are selling for about $19,400 (two per cent) under the asking price.


Nearby Lakeview and Applewood are the Dixie and the Orchard Heights neighbourhoods. This area makes the list for its proximity to Etobicoke Valley Park, which is just across the Mississauga border.

This park boasts lots of open green spaces and trails, including an off-leash dog park at the end of Etobicoke Creek.

Homes here are also pretty pricey. The median selling price is $1.2 million and homes are on the market for an average of nine days.

Of course, this list is not the final say for pet lovers. There are plenty of great parks and neighbourhoods for dogs. The Riverwood Conservancy, Culham Trail and Jack Darling Memorial Park make a top five list on insauga.com.
