A celebration is planned for a popular Mississauga waterfront trail that recently got a refresh.
J.C. Saddington Park’s waterfront trail recently underwent upgrades including reconstruction, trail resurfacing and edge restoration, asphalt trail widening and multi-flow drainage, shoreline protection, updated signage and trail markings, according to the City of Mississauga.
The upgrades were partially funded through a Trans Canada Trail grant aimed at enhancing the Mississauga section of Canada’s national trail.
The park, at 53 Lake St. in Port Credit, offers a looped path system, picnics areas and a playground.
It was once the site of a landfill that was in use from 1949 to 1970. The lakefront park was built on the former landfill. J.C. Saddington was the Town of Port Credit’s first mayor in 1961. Previously a village, Port Credit became a town and then became part of the City of Mississauga in 1974.
Residents are invited to a ribbon cutting to celebrate the trail improvements on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. There will be light refreshments.
Also on Saturday, Vimy Park will officially re-open in Port Credit at 10 a.m.
