The City of Mississauga is building a new park and community centre in the Ninth Line lands future development area between Highway 403 and 401. The project will be developed in phases and serve the local community and future urban development along the City’s western boundary, near a tributary of Sixteen Mile Creek, with a community centre and a 57-acre park.
