Applewood is a long established community located in the very east end of the city of Mississauga with Etobicoke on the east, Cawthra Road to the west, Burnhamthorpe Road to the north, Dundas Street to the south, and extends towards Etobicoke Creek past Dixie to the East. Applewood remained predominantly rural until the mid-1950's when G.S. Shipp & Sons Ltd. began developing the Applewood Heights subdivision, making it one of the oldest communities in Mississauga. Long established with classic-styled bungalows and split-level homes with some 2-storeys, on generous sized lots, making Applewood less busy than newer communities that are big-box centered.
Applewood is known for its quality public and separate schools, with many families moving to the neighbourhood specifically for the French Immersion programs. Burnhamthorpe Public School is rated #15 in Mississauga. Tomken Middle School is ranked #1 and Applewood Heights Secondary School is one of the most intriguing high schools in Mississauga with a number of speciality programs.
Easy access to downtown Toronto (via the Queen Elizabeth Way and GO Transit), Mississauga City Centre and Toronto Pearson Airport makes Applewood ideally suited for its diverse population of nearly 34,000 residents.
