Beaty was founded in 1998 as part of the Town of Milton’s ambitious urban expansion plan. Development began in the early 2000s because of an increase in demand for larger, traditional detached homes with two-car garages, which make up the majority of the housing stock here. This neighbourhood has some of the widest and deepest lots available, including the highly-coveted 56-foot wide lots, making it a popular choice among families looking for more space. The amount of parks and bike lanes and the quality of its award-winning schools contribute to its family-friendly character. Beaty is conveniently located within Milton’s urban core, with a variety of family-friendly hot spots nearby like Milton Common Mall and the First Ontario Arts Centre.
