Secretly known as the “Forest Hill” of Vaughan, Kleinburg houses the affluent executive types.

Kleinburg locals hold much pride in the area’s reputation, which is home to the famed McMichael Canadian Art Collection and Kortright Centre for Conservation.Take a stroll through the historic village to discover its treasured shops.

Neighbourhood Hot Spots:
Avenue Market Café: The chic and trendy spot to grab an espresso and be seen.
Mr. McGregor’s House Tea: The mix of a lovely garden, baked goods and home-cooked dishes make you feel like you’re visiting family.
Villaggio Ristorante: Chef Antonio Barbiere’s charming ambiance gives Italian cuisine a gorgeous look.

Housing Stock:
Your entry ticket starts at $650,000 for cosy bungalows, while monster mansions along the conservation and Humber River are by far the most expensive. Zoning changes are in progress, so expect major transformations for Kleinburg.

If you’re looking for action, Maple is the place! Canada’s Wonderland, Vaughan Mills and fine restaurants are the staple stops for locals and visitors. With the approval of a subway extension, an influx of 416ers are expected to make the trip.
