Two Mississauga Locations Declared Canada’s Hidden Gems


Published July 19, 2017 at 3:34 am


Although locals know Mississauga boasts a ton of gorgeous locations that are legitimately worth traveling to experience, few people realize that the lesser-known suburb outside of Toronto has some exceptionally visit-worthy gems.

Until now.

The Intercontinental Hotels Group, which is comprised of such well-known hospitality chains as Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and more, called upon Canadians to submit their favourite hidden gems as part of the brand’s Canada 150 celebration.

Now, the brand’s website is sharing residents’ favourite travel spots from coast to coast and, believe it or not, two Mississauga locations made the list.

Which locations, you ask?

The beautiful Rattray Marsh Conservation Area and Riverwood Park.

The picks come as no surprise, as Riverwood is one of the biggest parks in Mississauga (and one known for being home to Visual Arts Mississauga) and Rattray Marsh is a go-to for nature lovers.

Other Canadian hotspots that made the list include the world’s tallest teepee in Medicine Hat, Alta., the Niven Lake Trail in Yellowknife, Pink Lake in Chelsea, QC., and the Halifax Public Gardens.
