Thanks to some great planning and precautions taken, Mississauga and Ontario on a whole has dealt with Coronavirus as well as any country, and better than most.
As such, most of our beautiful parks have re-opened as of this past Monday. With restrictions slacking, it’s time to get back out into nature right as the weather is starting to improve. So we put together a quick list of four parks you can and should visit to get some fresh air!
J.C Saddington Park
Port Credit’s J.C Saddington Park isn’t the most exotic park but what it lacks in unique flowers, it more than makes up for with it’s stunning views.
You can start your walk near the Port Credit lighthouse and make your way along the lakeshore all the way up to the Credit Landing Plaza. Along the way you can walk along the rocks, look at the wave-breaker boat, and catch an incredible view of Toronto.
The Hancock Woodlands is a gorgeous, man-made park that only opened in 2018. This four-acre wood is bustling with trees, fauna, flora, birds, and so much more.
It’s a great park to visit for all ages because it’s all flat paths with lots of seats scattered along the way.
Kariya Park is a slice of heaven within the bustling city. Located right next door to Square One Mall, entering Kariya Park feels like entering a portal into a different world.
The little park has beautiful cherry blossom trees surrounding a pond with Japanese-style architecture and bridges. It’s a greatplace to go to unwind, and that makes it the perfect place to go now.
Along one of Mississauga’s busiest roads, Dundas Street West, you can find the largest park in the city, Erindale Park.
At over 220 acres, Erindale Park features five picnic areas, five barbeques, six comfort stations, a playground, walking trails, fishing spots, and some great views of the old dam and a toboggan hill. It’s a popular spot for photographers and bird watchers, and it’s perfect for 2020 because you can practice social distancing with ease!
