Mississauga’s Newest Destination Park is About to Open
Summer may be over (and the unseasonably hot fall weather we've been having is petering out), but there's never a bad time to visit a park—especially when it's one of the city's newest and most exciting.
The City of Mississauga recently announced that its newest park is opening to the public on Friday, Sept. 29 (although the grand opening ceremony, originally scheduled for the same day, is going to be postponed due to expected inclement weather).
Danville Park, located in the Malton area, is going to provide residents with more parkland and opportunities for outdoor fun—in fact, the cricket fields are currently growing in and will be ready for permitting in 2018.
Located northwest of the Highway 401 and Highway 410 interchange on Danville Road in Ward 5, the 27-hectare (67-acre) park provides a number of recreational activities that complement the area's unique topography.
As a contribution to the development of the park, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) donated $300,000 to create an iconic aviation-themed space within the park that incorporates a sleek overhead airplane, a painted runway, informational plaques and pinnacle posts denoting runway lighting. The space also includes aeronautical design elements chosen by the public.
The now-postponed opening was slated to include the unveiling of Final Approach Danville Terminal, an aviation-themed space in partnership with The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA). That should be carried over the rescheduled opening when it occurs.
So even though the grand opening has been postponed, the actual park opening has not. Residents can check out the park starting tomorrow.
