Neighbourhood Review

Architecture

Milton’s residential expansion project, called the Bristol Survey, began in the early 2000s. This expansion led to the addition of many new residential areas such as Beaty. This new neighbourhood has detached, two-storey homes as well as row houses and duplexes. Most houses have a small front lawn with a tree and a single-door garage. The detached homes often have patios or second-floor balconies as well as pillars decorating the front entrances. Many of the houses have brick exteriors while it’s also common to see vinyl or stone material. The neighbourhood is bordered by Thompson Road to the west, Fourth Line to the east, Louis St. Laurent Avenue to the south, and Derry Road to the north.

Restaurants & Dining

Most of the restaurants near the Metro on Louis St. Laurent Avenue are chains like Pizzaville, Bento Sushi, Subway, and Pita Pit. There’s also a Chinese takeout restaurant called Empire Wok. The next closest area for restaurants is northwest of Beaty near the intersection of Holly Avenue and Derry Road. This is where you can find a wings restaurant called Wingshack. Next to here, you will find Symposium Cafe Restaurant & Lounge. Symposium serves both breakfast and dinner menus, so you can order eggs Benedict and steaks depending on the time of day you arrive. More restaurants are found north of here closer to Main Street in downtown Milton.

Parks

Beaty has many parks dotted between the residential areas. Beaty Neighbourhood Park is split into two sections on either side of Union Gas Trail. Both sections have numerous soccer fields, playgrounds, and baseball diamonds. There are also parking lots for parents attending recreational soccer games. Union Gas Trail is a long pathway in an open field dividing Milton’s communities. It’s a great place for a run or a stroll with your dog if you ever grow tired of the suburban streets. The largest forested area in Beaty with a trail is behind Milton Public Library on Fourth Line. This pathway connects to another section of Union Gas Trail and leads you to the farm fields near James Snow Parkway.

Transit & Commute Times
