About Erindale

Nestled Along the Credit River

Erindale Overview

Founded in the early 1800’s, the small hamlet of Erindale was known as the stopping place for stage coaches travelling between Toronto and Hamilton. Nestled along the east side of the Credit river near Dundas, Erindale Village is an exclusive area with prestigious homes. Many of the estate homes were summer homes for wealthy Torontonians. The MLS district of Erindale also covers the neighbourhoods of Credit Woodlands (north of Dundas) and  Huron Park (south of Dundas & west of Mavis Rd).

We have also included the small stretch of land between Burnhampthore and the 403, designated as Creditview on MLS realtor maps, but from a lifestyle perspective, enjoys all the same amenities of Erindale.

Erindale has a number of paths and trails in the community including the Queensway trail and a network of paths surrounding the Huron Park Rec centre that will keep you active. However, the best trails in the community are part of the larger Culham trail, a system of paved and unpaved paths starting at the Meadowvale Conservation Area in the north and heading south through the Riverwood Conservancy to Erindale Park.

Erindale Park

Erindale Park is a 222 acre park situated on the east bank of the credit river north of Dundas St W. The park has walking trails, a picnic area with outdoor grills, a play area and hills for tobogganing in the winter. I spent many days in Erindale park as a child, going for family and church picnics. There’s a large wide open space that’s perfect for large gatherings such as birthday parties and community events.
