The Village of Inglewood, Ontario is one of Caledon’s most dynamic villages, which draws people from around the area. For a small community, Inglewood has many amenities including an indoor arena and The Riverdale Fitness Mill. It also has a very active community group (Village of Inglewood Association – VIA). Living in Inglewood is very convenient for commuters as it is one line west of Hwy 10 (Hurontario), and just north of Olde Base Line Road. Inglewood is about 10 minutes from Brampton and 35 minutes to Pearson International Airport.
True to Inglewood’s Heritage Style In the village core, you will find quaint century homes, many that have been updated and renovated while keeping their charm. Over the last 40 years, houses have been built on the north and northwest side of Inglewood with properties ranging from just under an acre to around 3 acres.
The real estate along Ingleview Drive was developed in the 1980’s. The escarpment views from the west side properties are exceptional. Back in the village, The South Slopes of Riverdale was developed in the early 2000’s. This pocket of homes, honours the heritage styling of the original Inglewood houses.

Like so many Caledon villages, recreational pursuits are easy in Inglewood. The Caledon Trail runs through the village, as does the Credit River. The trail is used for hiking, cycling, horseback riding, cross country skiing, bird watching and anything else that does not include a motorized vehicle. The trail is 35 km long and is accessible year round.
There is excellent fishing along the Credit River, but you will also find people canoeing, kayaking and “tubing” down the river. On hot sunny days, it is not unusual to see small and large groups of people floating down the river on inner tubes! The Caledon Golf & Country Club is on the edge of Inglewood. It is a public golf course with restaurant and banquet facilities. The Caledon Hills are a beautiful backdrop for a day on the golf course!
