What is the eastern boundary of Port Credit? Answer: Enola Ave

From time to time, I am asked questions regarding what I would describe as an advanced civilization located to the west of Toronto. The civilization is sufficiently advanced, that it goes about its business without attracting too much attention from the municipality to the east of it. In fact, Mississauga goes about its business by often sliding well below the radar.

I am pleased, with regard to such topics, to share with you the fact that Enola Ave. serves as the eastern boundary of Port Credit.

A second topic, that I have recently had the occasion to research concerns this question: “What is behind the new buildings, at the north east corner of Enola Ave. and Lakeshore Road East in Lakeview?”

I did some quick research and have determined that behind the new buildings is located a tall fence. The fence is sufficiently tall, that you can’t see over it. However, if you hold a camera above the fence, you can see what lies beyond.

The answer is: “A huge empty field, the likes of which is a rare sight in this part of the world.”

Adamson Estate

I was interested to learn that the Adamson Estate, on the Lake Ontario shoreline, is located at the south east corner of Port Credit. This is a detail, regarding boundaries, that I did not know.

I have previously written about the Adamson Estate:

Adrienne Clarkson commemorates contributions of Canadian soldier – Sept. 7, 2014 Globe and Mail

I found it of particular interest to re-aquaint myself with the following sentence, from the above-noted post:

“The article refers to ‘delayed shell shock’ experienced by Agar Adamson.”
