Five things to do on Christmas Day in Mississauga

Published December 23, 2022 at 9:15 am


If you’re looking for something to do on Christmas Day in Mississauga after you’ve had breakfast, opened gifts and relaxed for a while, there are a few things you can consider.

Here’s a quick list—based on years of experience—of what to do on Christmas Day in this city:

Walk around Port Credit

The sheer beauty of this area will keep you moving. Grab your significant other and hold their hand and take them along the paths and streets of PC. Start off by parking your car at the Port Credit Library and start walking south. Go on the path that goes south under the Lakeshore bridge that follows the Credit River and take a walk around Snug Harbour and make your way to JJ Plaus Park to the tip of the path so you can see Lake Ontario and the Toronto skyline on a clear day. Port Credit is one of the nicest places to walk around in Mississauga.

Streetsville and the Credit River are good spots, too

Another place that’s nice to enjoy on foot is Streetsville. It might not have the beauty of a lake, but it has a lot of hidden charms that you can explore on Christmas Day. I would start on Queen Street, and if you are lucky enough, you will find a place that’s open to serve you coffee for the walk. Go south on Church Street and make your way down to Streetsville Memorial Park. There is a path that follows the Credit River north and it makes its way up to Main Street. Once you hit Main Street, make your way back up to Queen Street so you can explore historical Streetsville.

Go for a skate at Celebration Square Ice Rink

Even if you are not an ice skater (or just never go anymore), if there was a day to do it, it’s Christmas Day! Grab someone in your household and head down to one of the largest sheets of ice in the GTA — Celebration Square. If you don’t have skates, you can rent a pair.

Go to the movies

If you feel like venturing out to catch a new movie or two, it might be a good idea to check your local theatre and see what movies pique your interest.


Do some reading

If you’re looking for something new to read, why not support Mississauga’s library system by checking out an eBook? The library offers customers 24/7 access to eBooks and Audiobooks through the Libby App by OverDrive. Reader interest and usage have increased each year, with more than 4.4 million eBooks and Audiobooks checked out since 2010. In fact, the Mississauga Library surpassed one million digital book checkouts in November 2020, two months earlier than anticipated.
