Drumlin Co-operative is ideally located on two bus routes, which provide transportation to the city's two major shopping malls as well as connecting with bus routes to other areas of the city. If you prefer, we are within walking distance of strip malls, banks, car lots and one of the major malls as well. We are also only minutes from Highway 403 (via Lynden Road and Garden Avenue).
We are just across the park from a school, which boasts both a public and a separate school as well as a community centre on its premises. This means that your children won't have to cross the street to get to school! They can take the path leading right from the Co-operative to the schools.
The Co-operative offers on-site laundry facilities with two washers and two dryers at $1.25 per load. Landscaping equipment is available for member use, including lawnmowers, weedeaters, rakes, shovels, etc.
Our community centre, which provides a comfortable place for committee meetings, members' meetings and social activities, is also available for members to rent. You can rent the community centre for family gatherings, etc. for only $25.00 per day (a $100.00 refundable damage deposit is also required). This helps to provide members with that extra space that is sometimes needed for larger get-togethers.
We have two playground areas at the co-op, located
on either side of the community centre. One has a toddler playground with
slide and rock climbing tunnel, the other has swings and a larger playground
for children 5-12, including a rock climbing wall and twirly slide. In
addition, this area of Brantford also has many municipal parks, including
the Jaycees Sports Park.
It is a wonderful area of the city to live in because you are close enough to get anywhere else in the city easily, yet out of the main areas of congestion. Shopping, schools, buses, banks, restaurants and other entertainment facilities are only minutes away.
