October 17, 2017 Marlin Saiz

Toronto's neighbor Mississauga has more than 480 parks and woodlands for you to explore. Stroll the Waterfront Trail, rent a boat at the marina or spend a day at the racetrack. It's also called Ontario's shopping capital, with everything from shopping centers and outlet malls to picturesque village-style shopping streets.

A wonderful spot for a walk...lovely vegetation, wildlife and very peaceful. So nice to have this area that is away from the noise of the city...Especially beautiful in the fall with the vibrant colours.
Put away the cell phone and take a walk on your own or with others for some back to nature time...

Jack Darling Memorial Park

Reviewed By Lyra G - Mississauga, Canada

Came here with friends for our annual prayers group get together. We used to come here as a family to enjoy summer picnic & the beach to swim. It has been upgraded. Kids can enjoy the water features & park to play. Parking is a premium. It's easily gets full. You have to come early in the morning or late afternoon to get the spot you like or closer to the park otherwise you have to walk a long way. The Bbq area is better maintained.
Highly recommended & surely go back to enjoy the summer.

Mississauga Central Library

Reviewed By baroom - Mississauga, Canada

We knew the Central Library is near Square One but we just never went out of our way to visit, likely because we have Port Credit Library conveniently nearby. Early this month, we finally decided it was high time that we planned a trip to the city’s biggest library.
We did an internet search prior to our Sat morning visit, primarily to find out where parking is (underground paid parking, marked South Parking, access via Duke of York Blvd) and to ascertain that parking is free that day (yes, free on weekends and after 6PM on weekdays) as well as to verify library opening hours (Sat 9AM-5PM).
As we stepped out of the elevator and walked past the cafe tables and chairs, we could see the Information Desk right in front of us, the 3 book return slots on the left and the 6 self-checkout counters on the opposite side. This is the biggest library we have been to so far, 5 levels in all. We got so used to the cozy size of Port Credit Library that this one is plain huge in comparison.
We spent the next hour just looking around and getting ourselves oriented. After finding the Holds section on the left side past the book return slots, we climbed up the central staircase beside the 2 elevators and could not help but admire the atrium. Went up to the 2nd level (Science and Business), then back to Ground level (Reader’s Den) to browse multimedia--DVDs, music CDs, videogames--and large print books, then up to the 3rd level (Arts and History) to browse travel books and foreign language materials. Near the elevators, we saw posters on scheduled programs which are offered free to the public. For September, there was a Filipino language class and learning to hem jeans using a sewing machine. Clearly, this place has something for everyone.
The Mississauga Central Library interior looks somewhat dated but, overall, it is clean, bright and spacious with plenty of study tables, armchairs and internet computer stations. The “Tot Spot” area at the basement is underneath the atrium so young children’s voices carry to the upper level galleries. If you came for some quiet Reading (like most people) there are lots of available Seating near the glass panel windows. I checked out the female washrooms at both 2nd and 3rd levels–same layout with 3 cubicles and double sinks. No male washroom at 3rd level. Ground level washrooms are single person use only.

I grew up here and went to Streetsville High, it is wonderful to see how they have rejuvenated and made it the cool village place to be.
I am happy they were able to save the Santa's parade with private donations. So many friends and memories there.

The Riverwood Conservancy

Reviewed By Mowie_12 - Mississauga, Canada

I have visited this relatively new nature area several times this past year. I especially like to walk along the river and talk with the fishermen and fisherwomen along the banks. I love it so much that I have even dreamed that I was walking along the banks of the river. One could lose one's self just sitting and looking at the water as it just keeps going on and on. Awesome and it is natural, i.e. not man-made.

Kariya Park

Reviewed By Islesofthesun - Toronto, Canada

The beautiful Kariya Park is located in the heart of downtown Mississauga, across from Square One Shopping Mall. This beautiful park boasts the Japanese Garden a gift from the Japanese Government to the city of Mississauga. This park is hot spot for wedding and prom photographs or any any other occasion, just a few months ago, Jaden Smith and Cara Delevingne filmed a scene for their movie "Life in a year." It has a tranquil lake which is surrounded by cherry blossom trees, various animals (ducks and turtles,) and a bridge overlooking the great scenery. If your visiting Toronto, Canada and you're in the Mississauga area, make this a destination that you visit.
