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. The Deer Ridge community is certainly one of the top areas for the region’s high earners to call home. The neighbourhood also boasts top level shopping in and around King St. Access to the 401 and highway 8 is as easy as it gets, however there are no schools for children to attend. It’s almost entirely flanked by the Grand river, highway 8 and two golf courses, one private and the other public. The oldest portions are easily 50 or 60 years old, with the neighbourhood people would consider Deer Ridge proper no older than a few decades.
