It balances small businesses, farms, century-old homes, modern subdivisions and estates nestled along Bronte Creek and woven throughout extensive conservation areas. The town’s two corner stores, dry cleaners, flower shop, medical clinic, just to name a few, serve the local population who seeks to the least busy commuter routes, while having an easy access to amenities, such as the bank or the LCBO.
