Information on Aurora Neighbourhood
Looking back at the history of Aurora, which was once known as Machell’s Corners back in the 1800s, the then small village had a population of just over 40,000. By 1863, the village would see staggering growth, and would later become incorporated as a town, and by the mid-1970s, Aurora would be amalgamated by the Municipality of York
Today the town is now part of the King and Whitchurch Twps., and has become the backdrop for many city dwellers looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city.
For those who enjoy nature, and spending time outside, you’ll be happy to know that the town has more than one golf course, Beacon Hall Golf Club and the St. Andrew’s Valley Golf Club, among others. The most popular hiking spots are the Tom Jones Trail, and Sheppards Bush, located well within the town center.
When it comes to parks and other public spaces, Aurora Community Arboretum is the perfect place for families, while Fairy Lake Park and Town park Aurora offers biking and walking paths, picnic areas, and during the warmer months play host to a selection of cultural events hosted by local artists and town municipality.
Yonge Street and York Regional Road are where most of the town’s attractions such as restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and other local merchants are located. When it comes to retail shopping, the town does offer a unique experience for both young and old.
Aurora has established a distinguished reputation with the surrounding suburbs and other smaller villages and has become one of the most popular destinations for senior citizens who are ready to enter retirement.
With ample to do, see and enjoy, Aurora has more than just the necessary amenities, as the town is constantly developing and looking to improve on its existing structures.
