#2 of 8 in Wildlife in Mississauga
Located in central Mississauga and nestled along the banks of the historic Credit River, the 60-hectare (150-acre) Riverwood property is a special place where history, nature, beauty and peace blend together to create an enjoyable and lasting outdoor experience.

Visitors to this unique all-season destination will enjoy the freshness and new beginnings of wildflowers, bulbs and grasses in the spring; the cooling shade of 200- to 350-year-old trees and mixed old growth forests during the summer; the spawning salmon and breathtaking artist’s palette of vibrant yellows, oranges and reds in the fall; and the tranquility and beauty of the trees and ground blanketed in white snow during the winter. 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!

  • A nice quiet place with the Credit River rolling through. If you take bird seed with you they will land on you hand. There are no picnic areas just a series of trails.  more »

  • Great place to visit, especially on a nice day. Free parking. Plenty of trails and really well-maintained gardens. Gorgeous flowing plants in the spring and early summer. Beautiful colours in the fall. Good place for bird watching with bird feeding stations throughout. Good place to visit with the whole family.
  • I love Riverwood. Its around the Credit river.I've been there maybe 6 times with my Next Step to Active Living group. They conduct a lot of wonderful sessions...meditation, gardening, arts and crafts in the Visual Arts building. School groups cone there too. I've also been on walks there Sunday evenings. My son had his wedding pictures taken there. There are many trails and the gardens are beautiful....gorgeous flowers, native plants, trees. Last Sunday I went to the Mississauga Garden Festival held there. They also had a soiree...fund raiser. Art in the park is coming up. A wonderful place for a walk or just get away from the business of the day.
  • Beautiful little hidden bit if nature in the middle of the suburb. Great flowers and plants. Little critters everywhere and nice trails.
  • I love this place for walks. Well maintained walkways. Beautiful garden. Paths that lead you off trail. benches for resting located throughout the area.
  • Great hidden gem in Mississauga. Wonderful flowers and plants on display and trails to enjoy. Even some critters to hang out with.
