This long established neighbourhood in North-West Burlington was developed during the early 1970’s, shortly before Burlington was incorporated as a city. The neighbourhood is actually named after one of Burlington’s founding fathers, Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea), a war chief who lived in the 1700’s. Development of this area continued well into the 1990’s, and today Tyandaga remains a popular location for those who want to live on the edge of the city, but still close to all amenities. It shares its borders with the beautiful Tyandaga Golf Course, famous for its views of the Niagara Escarpment.
Homebuyers are often drawn to the charming, traditional architecture and tree-lined streets of Tyandaga. Because of the tucked away location, these are quiet, peaceful residential streets, lovely for a drive or a stroll. Many homes are built on the hill and have breathtaking views of the city and Lake Ontario. There is a mix of options to be found in this neighbourhood. Plenty of streets have smaller bungalows and split level homes that are perfect for young couples and families. However the most common type of property found is the traditional large, 2-story home, with a spacious lot and a double garage.
This area is predominantly families. There are lots of outdoor activities that cater to that demographic as well. Popular parks include Kerncliff Park, and Burlington’s newest park, City View Park. The 165 acre park has sports fields, a playground, hiking trails, boardwalks, and off-leash dog parks—perfect for a fun family day out.
Location! With easy access to the QEW, 403, and the 407, as well as the Burlington GO station and VIA Rail, this is a popular area for commuters who drive to neighbouring areas. Plus, downtown Burlington is just a quick 10 minute drive away.
