North West Community Centre & Sports Park P-459

Located at Ninth Line and Tacc Drive, Park 459 is a 20.7 hectare (51.1 acres) undeveloped park property at the City of Mississauga's westerly boundary Ninth Line north of Erin Centre Boulevard in Ward 10. It currently does not have a name and is referred to as North West Community Centre and Park 459. The site is characterized by relatively flat topography and contains a protected wooded wetland.

It is situated between Highway 407 and Sixteen Mile Creek to the West, and the Churchill Meadows community to the East.

The City will be developing these lands for an all season sports park with tournament level lit sports fields, passive uses, a variety of outdoor amenities, natural areas and a community centre.

In response to strong community demand for an indoor pool in the Churchill Meadows community, Councillor McFadden brought a motion to July 8, 2015 meeting of Council which received support for an indoor pool.

On September 30, 2015, Council approved a 25m pool and warm water tank at Park 459 to be included in the Corporate Business Plan and Budget. The corporate report is available here. Council approved the budget to add the pool in December 2015.
