This fall, we are celebrating rightsizing, the idea of finding the right home for your family’s specific needs.

Rightsizing can mean that a home has the right amount of bedrooms for a growing family, or that it has the perfect open-concept kitchen for entertaining, but it also applies beyond your front door. It’s the community where your kids will go to school, where neighbourhood barbeques bring people together, and where your family will make some of the most precious memories.

As a homebuilder and land developer, Activa develops the community for how your family really lives. This means building parks well before the completion of the neighbourhood, so families can enjoy them as soon as they move in. It also means building communities near amenities like schools, shopping, transit links, and restaurants so that nothing is out-of-reach.

We’ve talked to some of our homeowners to find out what they love most about their communities – read their thoughts below!

Doon South

Our Kitchener community, Doon South, is known for its naturally embraced living. The neighbourhood celebrates environmentally-protected woodlands and greenspace, and its residents take great pride in the nearby trail systems and walkways throughout the community.

Though just minutes away from highway 401, no home in Doon South is more than a five-minute walk to a park – and its homeowners have formed a strong connection through regular events, barbeques and trail walks together. The new and innovative Groh Public School is shaping young minds with an open approach to student learning

Down the street is Ormston at Doon South, which will border heritage lands, be home to a proposed school site, and also feature several parks.

Vista Hills

With a countryside panorama, our Waterloo community Vista Hills has been created with over two decades of planning. Developing an environmentally sustainable community was critical in ensuring that generations to come can enjoy the natural beauty.

Residents of Vista Hills are just minutes away from a new Costco Wholesale, as well as The Boardwalk – a shopping centre complete with restaurants, a medical centre, a gym, movie theatre and more!

Parents will also be happy to send their children to Vista Hills Public School, which celebrates the high-tech feel of the Region and takes a modern approach to character development.

Trailside at Grey Silo Gate

Our condo project, Trailside, will be nestled into the prestigious Grey Silo Gate community. Surrounded by the countryside, the community encourages a relaxing lifestyle, with friendly neighbours around every corner.

Homeowners are minutes from unique amenities such as Grey Silo Golf Club, RIM Park, Walter Bean Trail, the St. Jacobs Farmer’s Market and more. Residents such as the Knipfel Family also are able to enjoy the excellent restaurants in the area, like Levetto and Sandy’s Kitchen.

Meet More Communities

It’s clear that our families love the communities they found home in (and not just in the ones mentioned above!). Homeowners love that Activa communities are developed for them, complete with the natural areas, amenities, and schools their family needs.

Reflections at Laurelwood offers homeowners a suburban condo near great schools, and Riverwood is nestled along the banks of the Grand River offering seclusion and easy access to city amenities. Take a look at all of our communities to find the rightsized home for you!
