  • Fantastic hidden gem inside Mississauga. Always lots going on to do all year round. The trails can be a bit much and challenging for some people with mobility difficulties. There is always lots of wildlife to find. Firefly's arrive in full force in late May. Warblers make their short visit in April to May. Can be busy and noisy with lots of people around but there is always areas you can make it to where it is much quieter. Early morning is a chance for deer. There is a swamp area and can make it to the River.
  • Excellent place to spend the day with the family if you are a nature lover. They have many events that are free. Will suggest strongly to go to the website and look for the upcoming events. We had a nature hike experience with my son and we loved it.
  • I really like the Riverwood park, it's just a really good place to hang out with your family and friends! On top of that, Riverwood is so big that you can explore there in different directions but make sure you mark ur footsteps otherwise you'll be lost. Overall, it's has a really good view of river, lake, few of the animals too. Very enjoyable place! Highly recommended to everyone.
  • Summer Weekends can get crowded and loud here but you can always find a quiet place on the trails to enjoy the song of the birds and the fresh air. It is a park for all seasons. Late in the fall trout season opens and brings lots of fishermen at the Credit. In the winter a hand full of bird seeds will attract local birds like chickadees , nuthatches, downy woodpeckers etc. Children love it.
  • Great community events. They hosted a fly tying class that was super fun and free. Check out their website for more events.
