Hurontario Street, also known as Highway 10, stretches from Lake Ontario in Mississauga all the way up to the shore of Lake Huron in Collingwood. However, in Mississauga and Brampton, Hurontario connects the communities and offers residents numerous conveniences and amenities.
At the mouth of the Credit River the former municipality of Port Credit is a hip end of Hurontario Street. Port Credit dates all the way back to the Mississauga Ojibwe first nations band and a trading post established in 1720. Today Port Credit is a commuters paradise and a great urban centre for young professionals and families alike. Boutique Shopping and fabulous dining like Ten Restaurant and Wine Bar are worth the drive to the area.
A little north along Hurontario Street sits one of the top retail destinations in the Greater Toronto Area – Square One Shopping Centre. Across from the City of Mississauga’s Living Arts Centre, a farmers’ market, bus station and a movie theatre have made Square One a success story since the ’70s! In addition to the huge shopping facility is the abundance of amenities, condominiums, dining venues and nightclubs, and is what many consider to be the hub of Mississauga.
With so many markets, plazas and big box outlets along Hurontario throughout Mississauga and into Brampton, the street has constantly undergone its share of renovations. Condominiums, semis, townhomes, and commercial real estate just keeping popping up on this pipeline between two major great lakes, Huron and Ontario. It’s definitely a sought-after area for homeowners!
Grenville and William Davis Courthouse and the Peel Regional Police Force, 21 Division also call Hurontario Street home, as well as many businesses including the popular mall Shoppers World. As Hurontario turns into Main Street briefly in downtown Brampton, it features Gage Park – a popular place for locals with skating in winter and beautiful gardens in the summer, as well as Brampton City Hall at the corner of Main and Wellington. Downtown Brampton also features many restaurants and dining options.
A forever changing landscape surrounds Hurontario Street, and it’s been a street of business since the 1700s. It’s a convenient place to find almost anything and will forever connect the thriving cities of Mississauga and Brampton!
