Dixie real estate guide & listings for sale
Dixie offers a vast selection of green spaces to enjoy, despite its sometimes busy feel. The majority of locations within the neighbourhood have fairly good access to green spaces, including Etobicoke Valley Park and Willowcreek Park, since most homes for sale have one close by and there are a few parks nearby for residents to visit. This part of Mississauga is relatively quiet, thanks to the presence of few people out and about on the streets, although those who are around the railway line may experience higher levels of noise.
Dixie provides house buyers with several alternative modes of transportation. The public transit system in Dixie is fairly good. For instance, there is the Dixie Station on the Milton Line. The neighbourhood is served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most properties. Physically active home buyers will also appreciate the quite walk-friendly nature of Dixie; many common errands can be run without having to resort to a vehicle. The bike is a somewhat poor method of transportation in this neighbourhood because there is a significant amount of hills, and there are a limited number of bike lanes.
