East Credit is a relatively young neighbourhood with a balanced mix of townhouses and semi-detached and detached homes built in the 1990s and 2000s. There are few highrise buildings in the area, most likely due to its vicinity to the airport. The community is mostly defined by the Heartland Town Centre, an outdoor shopping centre comprised of 2.2 million square feet of space and 180 stores, making it one of Canada’s largest malls.
PARKS AND REC
The condo townhomes at 6050 Bidwell Trail are just a 5 minute drive from Braeben Golf Course, an 18 hole championship course and a 9 hole par 3 course that was once a landfill site up until 2003 when it was redeveloped. It’s also close to many parks, including Bancroft, Sonoma, Heatherleigh and Bidwell Trail Common located right across the street, as well as River Grove Community Centre, which is equipped with a fitness facility, gym, indoor pool with water slide and community meeting rooms for a myriad of programs.
East Credit has easy access to highways 401, 403 and 407, and MiWay bus routes on major arterial roads. The closest Go Station is at Meadowville Town Centre, approximately a 10 minute drive away. However, the neighbourhood is not considered the most commuter-friendly. It has a transit score of 44 out of 100, due to its few nearby public transportation options.
The neighbourhood has a range of public and assigned schools, providing quality education to kids close to home.
