    We are moving from downtown Toronto (queen near Ossington) to beautiful Port credit. I lived in port credit twenty years ago and am drawn back to the waterfront and lifestyle - and look forward to getting away from Toronto which is mainly focused on attracting clubs (at least near queen west). Port credit is great and will only get better with new and respectful urban planning.

    Amazing nature spot to check out in Mississauga. Not too large, so it's walkable for most people. Loved the view from the small beach area -- it was quiet and not too crowded. Hidden gem of nature -- makes you imagine what the landscape might have been before.

    So nice to be by the water on a sunny November day. Park was clean, plenty of parking (weekday afternoon), the only problem is that both sets of washrooms were closed. Come on City of Mississauga, we should be encouraging people to spend time outside year-round, but without toilets it really limits how long you can stay / whether you can drink a coffee / whether you can bring kids.

    This lovely little Japanese garden is an oasis in the middle of the city. One can walk inside the gate and shut out the hustle and bustle of the city. There are lovely ponds with waterfowl. There was even a blue heron there the day we visited. I would recommend this to others.

    This park has several hiking trails, is well maintained, lots of trees and I never seen a park in my life that has so many picnic tables and fire pits. There is also public washrooms and free parking.

    This place is a wonderful place to hike and see and experience nature. A bubbling river, gentle trails, lush wooded areas all the more made magnificent by amazing Fall colours, birds chirping, deer sightings sometimes.

    This has always been a favourite park of mine here in Mississauga.

    I took my bride here for a quick picnic on a surprisingly beautiful fall day. There's plenty of benches near the library where we parked for free. It's a pond really, but the geese and other birds make for a nice slice of nature in otherwise acres of suburban sprawl. Lots of people strolling, talking, enjoying the circumference path and trees. All age groups and diversities of culture were present. A nice way to spend an hour.

    A great place to walk in natural surroundings and enjoy Canada's seasonal beauty. Great for birdwatchers too, esp. at dusk..and if you're lucky you could see deer, n=brown fox or tortoise.

    I live not far from these gardens (as well as all the other parks along the Lake). Every time I visit this beautiful park, I see something new and wonderful. This is an amazing place, run by volunteers who work hard to keep the gardens beautiful. It's so calm, peaceful and relaxing. And it's one park where you can count on dog-walkers to keep their pets on the leash. Watch out for bikers, though.

    This is actually a pretty quiet but accessible parkland close to the highway, and families like it. It’s not touristy and is where smaller events are held. The waterfront trail is very smooth (for skateboarders too), and the pond and marina had fowl/ducks and water lilies in bloom. The walk of fame stars featured celebrities like Cara or Talent; Colonel Sanders (KFC) lived in Mississauga with William Graham Bell across the line both here in Ontario. Snug Harbour pub has a good patio to sit and enjoy drinks, open at night, and the nearest Starbucks at the marina has washrooms and seemed dog-friendly. That’s if you can’t find the public washroom, which is facing Snug Harbour at the dock, closer to the road from the parking lot. There were surprisingly few bugs, maybe because it’s not marshland like Rattray-Jack Darling Park, which has a boardwalk—about double the size or distance (8 km). The walk around Saddington from Port Credit Marina is less than 5 km if you park for free at the very end of Stavebank Road, which also has separate marina and $2 inn parking (payable by visa at the east lot entrance) on weekends. It’s worth the drive to catch the sunset and have a picnic/coffee. (Just don’t take the Hurontario West exit back home due to construction.) Try getting away from the bustle and drinking in a little nature!

    Small, but it's a decent location to take some great sunrise shots. The beach is covered with red rock broken pottery pipe.

    A verdant, picturesque park in Missisauga Canada - complete with a wonderful water front. Had a picnic with my college alumni - a thoroughly enjoyable day. Provision for grilling and spacious grounds for outdoor activity needs mention. The wash rooms were temporary, due to construction activities being underway.

    This is a great place to bring your dog/ puppy to socialize and enjoy playing with other dogs. The over 3.5 acre terrain has both trees flat surfaces for your dog to enjoy. This is Mocha's favorite spot for chasing squirrels.
