The Hillside neighbourhood is named after “Hillside”, a Gothic style mansion built in 1872 by William A. Milne on the hillside of the Rouge River Valley
In 1995 both the government and privately owned Hillside properties were incorporated into the “Rouge Park” conservation area
There are approximately eighty-six homes in the Hillside neighbourhood of which about twenty are privately owned and the rest are owned by the provincial government.
The Hillside properties owned by the government are managed by the Ontario Realty Corporation which rents them out to qualified applicants. Many of these applicants are farmers who must undergo a selection process that also involves the Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
Hillside residents get to their shopping destinations by car. The most popular places to shop are the Pickering Town Centre and the Markville Mall at Highway 7 and McCowan Road.
The Hillside neighbourhood is part of the Rouge Park mosaic that includes a unique combination of woodlands, valleys, meadows, rivers and farmland that all combine to form Canada’s largest urban park
The Hillside neighbourhood is not serviced by public transit. Motorists can take Old Finch Avenue or Steeles Avenue east to Markham Road which links up with Toronto’s commuter highways
