This lovely, gracious hamlet has conservation area parks both to the north and south, with the Caledon Trail running right through! Albion Conservation Area to the south, allows camping, fishing, hiking, cycling, swimming and non-motorized boating in the summer and has 27 km of skiing trails with skaters and tobogganers enjoy the lake and the hill leading down to it. Palgrave Conservation Area is to the North and the 35 km Caledon Trails uses the old rail trail to create an easy ride down to the southwest corner of Caledon.
Palgrave is also known for the Caledon Equestrian Park that hosts world-class equestrian competitionsand was the equestrian location for the Pan-American Games that were held in Toronto and The Golden Horseshoe Region in 2015. For this reason, you will find lots of “horsey” people and properties in the area.
Real Estate in and around Palgrave varies greatly. There are wonderful, small enclaves of mid range homes starting in the mid $600,000. Caledon’s largest estate development area is just outside the Hamlet of Palgrave’s boundaries; you will also find grand homes in the $1.5 – 3 million range and acreages that offer a full range of lifestyle options.
Like so many Caledon communities, older homes have been converted into businesses, especially along the main streets. This convergence of live/work energizes small hamlets & villages as the local residents appreciate, support and promote the services offered by their neighbours.
