Deer Ridge is the better known unofficial name of Pioneer Tower West, a formerly sleepy back-water when I was growing up many years ago. It’s nestled between Highway 8 and the Grand River in between Cambridge and Kitchener. The iXpress and GO buses do pass through the area but you are away from things as far as public transit goes. But access to the 401 and highway 8 is as easy as it gets.
The area is a mix of older, prestigious almost rural properties (mostly in the south east and north east end) and more contemporary homes built between the late 1990s and into the present day. The neighbourhood is high end with a ton of cachet.
The Deer Ridge community is certainly a popular choice for the region’s high earners, and the private golf club is a big draw. The neighbourhood also features nearby entertainment and shopping at Sportsworld Crossing.
Groceries can be had at the Costco or several nearby stores in Cambridge and Kitchener. There are no public schools in Deer Ridge, but I expect that many families will opt for private school instead.
