Cooksville, named after Jacob Cook, is located at the intersection of Dundas St. and Hurontario St. It is bordered by Mavis Road and Cawthra Road to the west and east respectively. The Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) lies to the south while the Cooksville GO Station Rail borders the north of Cooksville.
Cooksville isn’t a neighbourhood per se. It’s really a small city within a bigger city. Cooksville has an autonomous feel to it, partly because it’s separated from Mississauga-proper by major highways but also because historically it was a separate town and so it’s evolved around its own City Square.
Buyers of Cooksville homes will find the area to be self-sufficient, i.e. you never have to leave its borders for the daily necessities. It has all of the amenities and attractions you’d expect of a city centre including a commercial district, Square One shopping mall, an art gallery, the Living Arts Centre that’s home to the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra, a large sporting arena, a community centre and library, hospital, tons of restaurants and cafés and more.
The other possible deal-breaker (although for some buyers, this is considered a plus) is that the architecture in the heart of Cooksville is all relatively new – think modern condo towers and office buildings. You’re not getting “quaint” in Cooksville. What you are getting is city living at a smaller scale than Toronto or Mississauga City Centre.
Fairview, which separates Cooksville from downtown Mississagua, is often considered an extension of Cooksville as the neighbourhoods seem to bleed into one. Buyers interested in Cooksville homes for sale should also check out listings in Fairview.
Cooksville has a GO station and easy access to major highways, making it a good location for commuters.
