COVID-19: Latest news and information

In progress City project

Downtown parks engagement

The City is planning to expand and improve downtown parks by building two new parks and redeveloping two existing parks.

There are 10 existing parks and a range of trails for residents to enjoy in the Downtown Core. Parks in the Downtown have a variety of features such as an interactive water feature at Celebration Square, a multipurpose ramp park at Mississauga’s Civic Centre and café seating at Scholars’ Green.

Public engagement update

The City postponed any in-person public engagement based on public health recommendations around COVID-19 and the need for physical distancing. With that in mind, we would like to thank you for providing your feedback through the online survey in 2020.

Through the 2020 survey, the City heard a lot of feedback about Downtown parks with a focus on three parks (Zonta Meadows, John “Bud” Cleary Park, and the future park at M City). A summary document of the feedback has been prepared outlining the key findings and next steps. Residents wanted to see additional park equipment, trees and better ways to move around the neighbourhood. The feedback gathered informs the park designs.

The City will be updating residents in spring 2022 on the progress of the park designs through a design review survey.

During this review stage, the City will include information about an additional fourth park at the corner of Kariya Drive and Elm Drive West.

Please see below for more details about Zonta Meadows, John “Bud” Cleary Park, the future park at M City and the future park at Kariya Drive and Elm Drive West.

The primary entrance of the park is to be located at the intersection of Elm Drive West and Kariya Drive, with smaller nodal entries through the park’s perimeter. Designed as urban public space, the park will serve passive and active uses with amenities that allow for small group gatherings.

The park will be an all-season community park with outdoor recreational amenities, a walking trail and passive uses including natural areas. The park will include space for informal classes, such as yoga.

Play elements in the park may include a sculptural climbing structure, artificial turf with moveable logs and oversized seesaws.

Downtown Strategy

The City is developing a guiding document called the Downtown Strategy. In 2019, an online survey was circulated asking for your say on the Downtown Core and what the City could do to improve it.
