Mark Your Calendars! City Plans 13 Official Opening Celebrations

May 10, 2011

As the dust clears, the paint dries, and the flower beds are prepped, the City of Mississauga is making plans to officially open and reopen its major Infrastructure Stimulus Fund (ISF) and Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) projects this spring and summer.

Celebrations are scheduled for four renovated libraries and six outdoor pools, two new indoor pools and Mississauga Celebration Square, the City's new public square which was redeveloped as a state-of-the-art event destination.

All official openings will begin with a ceremony, including participation from municipal, provincial and federal levels of government, each of which contributed approximately one third of the project funding. Each event will continue with refreshments provided by Panera, followed by interactive activities, performances, displays and related programming such as free swims. All events are free and open to the public.
