Lakeview Waterfront Connection Project

Credit Valley Conservation, on behalf of the Region of Peel and with the support of the City of Mississauga and Toronto and Region Conservation, has embarked on a project entitled Lakeview Waterfront Connection.

The Lakeview Waterfront Connection Project, an element of the Inspiration Lakeview visioning process for the Mississauga Waterfront, includes the creation of a new park along the eastern Mississauga shoreline. The intended purpose of this project is to enhance and re-create natural coastal habitats, build a natural park that encourages public access, use, and exploration along the waterfront, and facilitate sustainable city building. For more information, please visit the Credit Valley Conservation website here.
