In addition to being located in close proximity to several popular regional destinations, Markland Wood is defined in large part by the ring of parkland that surrounds it.
Markland Wood’s geography is reminiscent of an island-complete with waterways forming a large part of its boundaries. As a result of being largely surrounded by Etobicoke Creek and one of its tributaries, the neighborhood is only accessible via a small number of streets. This has led to less congestion on residential streets, as well as a feeling of exclusivity amongst residents. Walking and cycling trails along Etobicoke Creek offer easy access to nearby Centennial Park. Most of the available commercial and retail options within the neighborhood are located along Burnhamthorpe Road, while the nearby Cloverdale Mall provides a wealth of shops and restaurants.
