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!

  • 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.
  • Great place, well maintained. Come for a walk, run, fishing, picnic, whatever. Also very nice in winter time.
