Thee Peterborough Lift Lock
The Peterborough Lift Lock
 Thanks for taking the time to read my most recent blog.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am Rick Phillips, Director of Sales and Marketing at Parkview Homes. In 2008, I relocated from Southwest Florida to Peterborough, Ontario. Prior to moving here, I did extensive research before choosing Peterborough as my new hometown, and more specifically the College Park area located in the West End.

Before I conducted my research to find my new hometown, I determined a list of “wants/must haves” that my new hometown would ideally provide for my family and I:
  • I wanted to live in an area with many convenient amenities close by.
  • I wanted easy highway access to visit family in Toronto.
  • I wanted to be close to many lakes and rivers and tourism located in the Kawartha’s.
  • I wanted to be in an area with great schools.
After extensive research, I purchased my new home in Peterborough, more specifically the College Park area, and I must say it is a fantastic place to live. Not only did Peterborough and the College Park area meet all my “wants/must haves”, Peterborough offers so much more! In terms of entertainment, lifestyle, indoor and outdoor recreation, travel and tourism and overall quality of life, Peterborough is a fantastic place to live, work and play.

I currently have the pleasure of selling a brand new community just seconds from my front door; Lyon’s Gate III. I couldn’t be more excited about this new community, not only because I get to work in my neighbourhood, but also because I get to share the neighbourhood I have called home for the last five years with many new families. My hope is that they will have the home of their dreams and they will enjoy this spectacular neighbourhood as much as I do.

In terms of amenities Lyon’s Gate III and the College Park are in a premier location! These communities are located just minutes from:
Not only does the College Park area provide you with the best location in the city, Peterborough as an entire city also offers so much to see and do! 
  • Markets
    • Wednesday Downtown Farmers Market
    • Saturday Farmers Market
  •  Trails
    • Jackson Creek Park
    • Trans Canada Trail
    • Rotary Trail 
I am so happy with my decision to call Peterborough and the College Park area my hometown. After five years I couldn’t image a better place for my family and I to live!

Lets become neighbours! I would like to personally invite you to come and experience the amazing lifestyle in Peterborough’s College Park area. With the 407 joining onto Highway 115 in only a few more short years, now is an amazing time to invest in Peterborough, and experience the unbeatable lifestyle it provides.

I look forward to touring with you around the area, and having the opportunity to show you many of the fine amenities that Peterborough has to offer you and your family.

1633 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough

I look forward to meeting you!
