    It is a growing municipality with a population of approximately 151,000 located at the western end of the Greater Toronto area.

Sailing vessels in the area are used for recreational purposes and moor at a small marina in LaSalle Park.

    History

    The City of Burlington achieved city status in 1974, but the history and traditions surrounding the evolution of Burlington extends back much further. The area that we now know as Burlington is a collection of older pioneer communities, some that still retain a unique identity in the current city and some that still only exist in the pages of history.

Milton

    Milton's earliest beginnings can be traced back to 1825, when an enterprising young man named Jasper Martin built a gristmill on a mill pond. By harvesting the power of the swiftly flowing water, Jasper's gristmill prospered and grew to become the centre of a settlement called Martin's Mills, with a population of just 100 people in 1837.

    The townspeople soon changed the name of the town to Milton because of the Martin family's fondness for poet John Milton. The Town of Milton was incorporated in 1857 and the first Town Council meeting was held in the County Buildings, where the current Town Hall is still located, on July 4, 1857.

    Today, the Mill Pond is still flourishing in the centre of town, but without the gristmill, surrounded by a landscaped park. This gathering place is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts who want to walk, picnic and fish or just sit on a bench to enjoy the nature around them. From the historic downtown core with a bustling Saturday morning Farmers' Market, to the steady business growth and development throughout the town, Milton has continued to prosper over the years. Nestled at the base of the scenic Niagara Escarpment, Milton is also well known as the preferred tourism destination Escarpment Country.

    Phase 2 Residential - Sherwood Survey

    The Town of Milton is currently proceeding to prepare for the development of the Sherwood Survey lands (also known as Phase 2 of the Urban Expansion Area).
