VANDYK group of companies is excited to launch a new video series called Clarkson In Minutes. The video series will give viewers a glimpse into everyday life in the historic and mature south Mississauga neighbourhood of Clarkson Village. Each video in the series will highlight the walkability to nature, restaurants and other great amenities from The Craftsman Condominium Residences – VANDYK’s new landmark community at the east gateway to Clarkson Village.

Episode 1: Rattray Marsh Waterfront Trail

In our first installment of Clarkson In Minutes, we take you on a quick walk to the scenic trails of the Rattray Marsh Conservation Area. We start the route from The Craftsman’s Sales Centre and Model Suite, which is located directly beside The Craftsman site on Lakeshore Road West.

Rattray Marsh is an environmental gem located in a unique natural setting with 94 acres of woodland habitats and environmentally sensitive wetland. Protected and preserved by the Credit Valley Conservation, Rattray Marsh is the last remaining coastal wetland in the western basin of Lake Ontario.

Only a seven minute walk from The Craftsman, Rattray Marsh has been a treasured community spot for many years. It features natural rivers and beautiful boardwalks and trails that lead to the serene Lake Ontario waterfront. With a variety of wildlife and plants, it’s the perfect spot for nature lovers, families and those with active lifestyles.

Walking access is located on the west side of Rattray Marsh at Bexhill Road or through Jack Darling Memorial Park. We show you another route option that is closest to The Craftsman, which is walking south on Meadow Wood Road to the west entrance of the conservation area.

Live at The Craftsman and Discover the Art of Living in all that Clarkson Village has to offer! Stay tuned for our next Clarkson In Minutes video that will tour some of Clarkson’s best restaurants. Learn more at
