Summer may be drawing to a close, but is there really a better time for exploring nature than when the beautiful colours of fall set in? Mississauga has over 480 parks and woodlands, great for watching the leaves turn, so why not check them out today? The Waterfront Trail is more than 650 km (400 miles) long and runs along the shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, stretching from Niagara-on-the-Lake all the way to the Quebec border. In Mississauga, the 22 km (15-mile) trail stretches from Etobicoke Creek through to the Oakville border. At Jack Darling Park, you can try your hand at windsurfing or canoeing, soak up the sun on the beach, hit the tennis courts, play a game of baseball or cool off at the splash pad. Avid fishermen populate J.C. Saddington Park (53 Lake St.). Located at the mouth of the Credit River, the area is rich in Chinook salmon and steelhead, as well as coho, pink and Atlantic salmon. Each year nearly 25,000 chinook salmon and 10,000 steelhead fill the river, providing ample chances to make that perfect catch. Boaters take note of Credit Village Marina in Port Credit and Lakefront Promenade Marina. Both first-rate facilities provide rental and docking space.
