One of the newer subdivisions in Oakville, Joshua Creek is an upscale community of luxury homes. One of the many elements residents find appealing is its proximity to Toronto & Mississauga, and easy access to highways. Close to the 403, 407 and QEW, this community boasts a travel distance of a mere 30 kms (approximately) to downtown Toronto. For those who prefer public transit, it is only a 25 minute train ride to Union Station (the heart of downtown Toronto) from nearby Clarkson GO Station.
