Our Perspective

How we see Parkland on the Glen

This building has it all for Toronto seniors. Condo ownership is available for those looking to invest. Rental suites offer exceptional retirement features, with some assistance available. This results in an integrated community, where seniors can decide to switch from condo ownership to care, in a community they're already familiar with. The best thing about the Parkland, though, is the unique combination of in-building luxuries and abundant conveniences just outside the door.

Still very new (founded in 2010), this seniors' tower combines rental units on floors 2 to 11, with user-owned condos higher up. This is situated very conveniently for your family in Mississauga and Brampton, while offering proximity to local shopping, churches and other services. Care available includes assistance with housekeeping and meals, with other health services (bathing, feeding, dressing, etc.) available for a fee; assisted living is found on the building's third floor.

Amenities inside include a year round swimming pool, fitness studio, pub, and movie theatre. You never really have to go anywhere else to have a good time. There are also chef-prepared meals in the dining room, with changing weekly menus. Residents have been known to move here just for the food.
