The Vaughan study area is located at the northern edge of the City of Vaughan, between Highway 400 and the GO passenger rail corridor. The study area is larger than the others in order to accommodate census and TTS data boundaries. The southwest portion of the site borders on the Paramount Canada's Wonderland amusement park and includes a parking lot associated with it, classified as employment land in the land use calculation.
The area contains one shopping plaza, a shopping mall and, on its eastern edge, the Maple GO passenger rail station. The street system is complex, incorporating a mixture of loops and cul-de-sacs and curvilinear through-streets that connect to the bordering arterial roads. The residential areas are separated by the Don River, which is surrounded by a buffer zone that connects to adjoining parks and schoolyards.
While 21% of dwelling units were built between 1980 and 1995, almost 80% were built between 1996 and 2001. All of the housing stock is ground-related, with 69% single-detached, 16% semi-detached, and 15% in the form of rowhouses.
