With woodland trails, splendid wildlife and glorious views, Riverwood is the ideal site to observe and enjoy the best of what Mother Nature has to offer! Come explore, learn and enjoy!

  • Very nice park for hiking and getting closer to nature with super nice trails that make you feel like in the middle of nature. They also have lots of events and activities. Check their website.
  • This park feels bigger than it looks on the map. There's a few nice trails that make you feel like you've escaped the urban jungle. I noticed there's also art classes offered. They also had a an art gallery promoting local artists.
  • Great place to spend a few hours on a nice day. It's a lovely pocket of nature in the heart of Mississauga with access to the Culham Trail.
  • I live nearby the Riverwood Conservancy and I walk to it from a connecting trail that runs parallel to the Credit River. This is great place to go for walks, especially if you're into bird watching.
  • Great place, well maintained. Come for a walk, run, fishing, picnic, whatever. Also very nice in winter time.
