Description: 335 Church Street. Conc 4 WHS, pt. Lot 3. Vic Johnston Community Centre was built in 1961 and named for one of its founding members, Vic Johnston, who, with Bill Arch, Sr. and Len Lee established a steering committee within the town council to construct a community centre and hockey arena to serve the people of Streetsville. Streetsville Memorial Park is the remnant of the Streetsville Fairground, established in the mid-nineteenth century. This is probably the oldest and most noted public open space remaining in Mississauga. Located adjacent to the Credit River this cultural landscape is a local landmark. The noted Bread and Honey Festival is held here each year. The Park is listed on the Heritage Register. Description as of December 2010.
