Description: A view of the Port Credit shoreline fill, west of the mouth of the Credit River, which would become Lakefront Park (later J. C. Saddington Park). In the background is the Texaco Refinery which was decommissioned in the 1980s. In 1971 the firm of Crysler & Lathem, consulting engineers, was retained by the Credit Valley Conservation Authority to prepare a plan for the development of the Mississauga waterfront sector of the Metropolitan Toronto Planning Area. At the same time Crysler & Lathem were retained by the Town of Port Credit to prepare a master plan for the proposed Lakefront Park on 14 acres of landfill south of Lake Street on Lake Ontario at the mouth of the Credit River. Lakefront Park later became J. C. Saddington Park on June 20, 1979, named after a former Mayor of Port Credit and Peel County Warden.
