Top 5 Park Trails in Mississauga

Published February 21, 2016 at 3:15 pm


City life is great. No matter what time it is, you can grab some pizza or even some late night Chinese. Everything we could ever want is just steps away from our doors, but sometimes we need a break from the hustle and bustle. Yes, we have tons of condos — but we also have hundreds of trails for the adventurer in us. Here is a list of five trails and parks that are perfect for a nature walk.

Glen Erin Trail:

The park walkway that runs all the way from Folkway to Erindale Secondary School. This trail will lead you through subdivisions, schoolyards and playgrounds. It’s a shortcut for many high school students who want to avoid the big roads and busy intersections. It’s a good place to go for a cute walk or to take your dog out for some exercise.

Culham Trail:

The massive pathway that sits beside UTM and the park that follows the Credit River. It’s a great place to go exploring, as you can find yourself following a dirt trail into a place only few have been. Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon hidden forest clearings or the remains of a house that used to call that park home.

Water Front Trail:

Just off of Lakeshore, this beautiful trail will take you on a journey around the great Lake Ontario. The Water Front Trail is a prime location to take a date right after you go for some ice cream at Diary Cream. Port Credit’s Yacht Club calls this wonderful waterfront space home, so that means fancy boats to stare at!

Lake Aquitaine Park:

Some of you might not know that Meadowvale has its own lake. Okay it’s nothing huge, but the cute manmade lake is a perfect place for a stroll. Walk around the trail that follows the water to help you get away from the city for a little while. It’s a great place to take the kids fishing or to even play some basketball. Who wouldn’t want to play ball with the view of a lake?

Applewood Hills Park:

The park that can almost call Etobicoke a neighbour, it stretches across the neighbourhood of Applewood Heights. It’s the perfect spot for people living in the suburbs to get some exercise and a place you can go during the fall to see the leaves change.
