The Scott neighborhood came into existence as part of the Sherwood Survey Secondary Plan developed in 2004. The Sherwood Survey was Milton’s first foray into building new urban neighborhoods and included the Milton Heights neighborhood to the north and the Harrison and Wilmot neighborhoods to the south. The name Scott was chosen to commemorate William Scott the first landowner in this area. Scott emigrated to Milton in 1821 on concession 1, lot 14. He was a farmer and likely held in high regard as Milton was known far and wide for its excellent farms.
The Scott neighborhood is bounded by Tremaine Rd – Derry Rd – CN Railroad tracks – Main St.
The Scott neighborhood is in southwest Milton and features plenty of green space, ponds, and parklands, as well as access to views of the Niagara Escarpment. Scott is a large newer neighborhood built on the western edges of Milton’s urban core. The Niagara Escarpment views to the west are spectacular. This is a family-friendly neighborhood with bicycle lanes, neighborhood parks, and schools. Scott neighborhood Park East and West provide a nice amount of green space in their respective parts of the neighborhood. CN Railway lines serve as the east boundary for the neighborhood and Tremaine Road in the west boundary. To the north and west are rural farmland and conservation areas for as far as the eye can see.
The neighborhood is predominantly residential, with a a small commercial area located along Derry Rd. Homes are newer, largely single-detached two-storeys, with some semi-detached, as well as townhouse complexes. With a nice variety of brick, stone and siding exteriors. The houses feature traditional architectural designs with columned front porches, front facing gabled roofs, single or double car built-in garages and nicely landscaped gardens. The lots are wide but not overly deep. Some houses have second floor porches which add an air of grandeur to these homes.
This neighborhood has many shops, services, and amenities to make your daily errands easy. Some notable places are; 2 Tim Hortons and 1 other coffee shop, 1 Shoppers Drug Mart and 5 other pharmacies, 1 gym.
