    Description

    Our home is located a block from the city bus route with connections across the city. GO train connections to all of Toronto's attractions are less than an hour on the train. It is a quiet suburban area with convenient grocery stores and restaurants within 3 km. It is only 5 minutes from the major highway and 10 minutes from Lake Ontario. There is a large naturalized area one block north of our home which follows a creek to a conservation area with plenty of trails for walking, mountain biking or winter snowshoeing. Oshawa is located on the shores of Lake Ontario with beautiful Lakeview Park. The Waterfront Trail along the lake shore goes right through Oshawa with great cycling and walking trails connected to it. Things to do in Oshawa include the Canadian Automotive Museum, Parkwood National Historical Site, Ontario Regiment Tank Museum, Botanical Gardens and Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery.
