City of Mississauga officials remind people to park legally near the city’s waterfront or face a stiff fine. 

Until Sept. 30, fines for parking and stopping violations in Mississauga’s lakefront area have been increased to $100. That includes local roads, City parks and municipal parking lots south of Lakeshore Rd., from the east city limits to Meadow Wood Rd 

“When visiting Mississauga’s waterfront neighbourhoods, avoid a fine by parking in permitted areas within parks or adjacent neighbourhoods,” City officials said in a tweet. 

The hike in fines is an effort to reduce traffic congestion and illegal parking, City parking enforcement officials say.  

“These can impact neighbourhood safety and access for emergency services vehicles,” the City said in an earlier release. “These areas become busy during the spring and summer months as residents and visitors are drawn to waterfront parks, trails and amenities.” 

Free additional parking on evenings and weekends is available at Port Credit Secondary School and the Brian J. Fleming Adult Education Centre during both the summer and throughout the school year.
