  • This is a boardwalk through a local Marsh. During the Spring you can see the fish spawning. And if you are quiet you may catch sight of a chipmunk, squirrel or muskrat. On a really lucky day you might see a deer. It's a very pleasant walk which isn't very long and mostly boarded. There are some pleasant it looks over the marsh and for the river the train is flat except for 2 loops that has a hill. However it is very clear which Loop has the hill and is bordered. The loop which is not on the boardwalk but has a hill is more of a hike if an easy one. There are often young children and dogs-which are not always on leashes. You can walk directly from Jack Darling park in to Rattray Marsh-almost without realizing it.
  • Nice natural habitat restoration area. Informative signs help you really appreciate the clean up effort put into this park. Well maintained trail and boardwalk through the marsh. Conservation trail leads into a larger park system at one end.
  • Our kids love visiting the marsh. A pair of swans frequent the marsh and we still get a thrill out of seeing them. The playground at the end of the marsh is interesting and has public bathrooms next to it. There is on going construction of a new boardwalk, but it just means exploring new areas of the marsh as you make use of the detours.
  • My favourite place to walk. Always beautiful - any time of the year.
  • Fantastic conservation area with easy access for strollers. The scenery is beautiful, and the length of the trail is just enough to keep kids entertained before it's time to double back.

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.
