Want to Cool Off in a Splash Pad or Outdoor Pool in Mississauga?
It's hot out there (yay!), so we want you to know there are some fun options for anyone looking to cool off while enjoying the sunshine.
The City of Mississauga recently reminded residents that they can "beat the heat" throughout the summer at a number of city-run pools and spray pads. Residents can also seek shelter under trees and various foliage at local parks, if they’re so inclined.
As far as spray pads go, residents with little ones can enjoy any of the 26 spray pads in Mississauga (weather permitting). All spray pads are unsupervised and open at 9 a.m. As for where they're located, you can find pads at Churchill Meadows Community Common, Huron Heights, Jack Darling Memorial Park, Mississauga Valley Park, South Common Community Centre and other locations throughout the city.
