HistoryClarkson Village is named after some of it’s first residents, Warren Clarkson and his brother Joshua who moved into the area from upstate New York. They opened the first store and post office and the town council named Clarkson Road in his honour.
Park Royal which is a community within Clarkson and in the 1950’s became on of the first communities in the country to have the electrical cables buried underground and had office buildings that were not as tall as the trees. Perhaps a foreshadowing of the green communities of today. Centrally they were ahead of the times back then.

Clarkson is quite diverse when it comes to real estate. The choices for places to live range from condo apartments, town homes, modest semi and detached homes including bungalows all the way to expansive custom built luxury homes backing on to Lake Ontario.
Some of the older homes are being replaced by new custom built homes on some of the larger lots and certainly south of Lakeshore Road in Clarkson. However many of the homes built in the 50’s are being updated and it's still possible to find a nice bungalow in the area for those looking to downsize. As Clarkson is one of the original communities in Mississauga, the streets are lined with mature trees and some of the lots are expansive.
