  • It can get quite busy in the summer time and parking is limited, which is why it’s best to arrive early because by noon time you’ll be scrambling. However, the kids park was newly upgraded and is now covered with AstroTurf and is tons of fun for children of all ages. There’s a great splash pad and the beach path is easily accessible. There’s also lots of room to set up shop to BBQ (you are allowed to bring your own grill). If you’re looking for a fun place to spend the day with family then Jack Darling Park checks off all the boxes.
  • The dog parks of Mississauga hold a special place in my heart. I appreciate them and am hoping for the city to develop more of them. There are so many dogs and only 7 parks with off leash areas. The puppies need more room to run free!
  • I was there during a freezing evening and it was such a great experience. You can zone out and just enjoy the nature. You can hear the waves, I didn’t go in the water, remember it was freezing! There is a dog park where you can bring your little buddy. Overall an amazing experience, very relaxing.
  • I love the soft sandbar which makes it safe for non swimmers and the water is tepid. The sand on the beach is soft and the water is clear. Parking is free which is awesome. My ONLY complaint is the black flies swarming and feasting on us. There's literally hundreds of them attacking us and it hurts. You have no choice but to run into the water to get away from them. Thank goodness the water is shallow. Five Stars for the lake and sand itself Zero Stars for the Vicious Flies
  • Best place in Mississauga to take your dog off leash. Not just a place where you take your dog and let them free and socialize, you can actually walk around with your dog. There are different places where you can play with your dog. You are not stuck in one park area if there are unruly/aggressive dogs.

Where to stay in Mississauga

Mississauga is best known for housing Toronto's airport-- most of the city's accommodations cluster just a few minutes from the terminal. If you're looking for a place to rest before your flight, you'll find a range of options on Dixon Road, to the north of the airport, or on Eglington Road West to the south. Don't expect much character--your options include mid-range chain hotels and basic inns, with little else on offer. You can find a handful of business-oriented hotels in the city itself, mainly located around Burnhamthorpe Road.
