  • This fort has not been restored or reconstructed in any way. Grassy berms and redoubts surround the brick core structure. There are a few interpretive signs but you'll need your imagination to fill in...  read more »
  • Look, if you want a nice, tidy little place with people wearing their finest britches, maybe just hang out at the golf course. THIS IS NOT THAT PLACE! I mean, come on! You have to walk through the act...  read more »
  • While walking I found this part of the fort. I was intrigued. Luckily there was some information about it. This Fort was built in 1812 to replace Fort George. It was finished in 1816. Interestingly en...  read more »
  • Fort Mississauga is a very unique and beautiful spot and a "must" visit if you are interested in history when you come to Niagara on the Lake. It is unique that it stands in the middle of a golf course and has never been restored. You DO NOT need permission to visit this property and there is a path way leading to it from the corner of Simcoe Streets and Front. As far as I'm concerned it is one of the best kept secrets of parks Canada in the country. I visit it often and the ramparts around it offer a spectacular view of the lake. Parks Canada is in the process of securing the structure from any water damage and in town we all hope it will last another 200 years.
  • The fort itself isn't open to the public, but the grounds are well maintained and worth checking out. Beautiful views of Lake Ontario.
  • Park on Simcoe Street, then follow the path through the golf course to walk around the old fortification, built from the remnants of the oldest lighthouse on the Great Lakes, as well as rubble from the burned town of Newark (now Niagara-on-the-Lake).
  • Yeaa mississauga! But it's just an old brick Shack.
  • The only reason I gave this place a low rating, it that facilities do not exist here at all. The buildings & ramparts still exist, but no employees, you can go into the fort (not the buildings, except some rooms in the ramparts) to get to the fort, you have to go across a golf course, if you would like to visit the fort, it may be an idea to get permission first (you may have to wait until there is space on the golf course)
