Popular park trail temporarily closed in Mississauga


If you recently tried to hike down a popular trail in Mississauga, you might have been disappointed to see that it's closed. 

The City of Mississauga recently confirmed that the Culham Trail, located in Erindale Park, is temporarily blocked off. 

The city says it's been closed due to excessive pathway damage that occurred during the January flooding. 

"The pathway is unsafe for pedestrians and in inaccessible at many points from Highway 403 to Erindale Park," Catherine Monast, a senior communications advisor with the city, told insauga.com in an email. 

While the news is disappointing, residents can still visit the vast and sprawling Erindale Park, which is actually the city's largest (it spans 89.88 hectares) park and one very commonly used for group picnics, hiking, jogging, cycling, cross-country skiing, bird watching, and wedding photography. 

The park, located on Dundas, offers vast kilometres of trails along the Credit River, a playground for children and a ton of forested areas. The park also boasts three information kiosks and a ton of fish (it's home to the very cool salmon run every year).

The Culham Trail is expected to reopen in sections in spring 2020.
