    I've visited this park several times now and always had great experience! Its fairly large with lots of locations to setup a BBQ by the water. There's a lengthy trail along the water with kids playgrounds throughout the park. Public washrooms are available as well as cold water taps around public BBQ pits. There are also large picnic bench areas which can be reserved and BBQ pits. One important thing to remember is that parking is very tough if your not there before 11am. It can get crowded very quickly!

    Very good view of downtown Toronto and the CN Tower. Right on the lake with amazing views. Several fire pits for BBQ in the summer (usually busy though). Make sure follow the trail deeper in the park for even more relaxing views. One of the biggest and best parks in Mississauga.

    Fabulous dog park with lots of room and varied terrain. Best of all running water for dogs AND proper washrooms for adults. A real gem.

    The park is really nice and has some great views but there are not enough picnic benches and the ones that are there are bolted down so big groups cannot all sit together. Besides that, overall great park

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.
