The area is generally described to be bounded by Wayside River to the west, New Leaside Crescent to the north, Victoria Park Avenue to the east, and Sobeys Road to the south.
Rarely referred to as Downtown Mapleview, despite the locale is the CBD of Mapleview, the locale received its name from the backbone road of the area, namely Lily Street North.

The tallest landmark in the locale is the Royal Maple Office Building, standing at 47 metres above ground.
