Lakeview Waterfront Connection – Transforming our Waterfront

The Region of Peel and Credit Valley Conservation plan to create a beautiful and naturalized conservation area that will transform the Lakeview neighbourhood into a hub for passive waterfront recreation, a hotspot for wildlife migration and a green oasis in the heart of the city.

Event details

CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH THE LAKE

The conservation area will be built along the Mississauga shoreline in an area that currently has no public access to the lake. The new green space will connect with Marie Curtis Park and the future Inspiration Lakeview lands next to the G.E. Booth Waste Water Treatment Plant.

CONNECTING TRAILS WITH THE LAKE

The conservation area will connect the Waterfront Trail with the waterfront. The trail currently runs along Lakeshore Blvd, away from the lake in this area.

PARTNERING FOR CHANGE

This project is a joint effort of the Region of Peel and Credit Valley Conservation with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority providing technical expertise. The project is supported by the Cities of Mississauga and Toronto who provide on-going review.

Input from local residents, the public and private sectors and all levels of government have been valuable in shaping the project. Efforts to seek additional input from these groups are on-going.
