In progress City project

New spray pads in parks

The City is adding new spray pads to three parks and construction will start in August 2021.

Project overview

The City is adding new spray pads at Garnetwood Park (Ward 3), Lisgar Green (Ward 10) and Mississauga-Meadowvale Rotary Park (Ward 10).

These new amenities will provide water play opportunities and enhance visitors’ experiences in these parks, as well as provide relief in the summer from extreme heat events.

Construction is scheduled to start in August 2021, and will be complete in fall 2021. The spray pads will be open to the public in spring 2022.

The development of the Lisgar Green and Mississauga-Meadowvale Rotary Park spray pads are made possible by the Government of Canada. Spray pads are a supported use within the City’s Parks and Forestry Future Directions Master Plan (2019).

The spray pads will include the following features:

  • Accessible-for-all spray pad with ground level and vertical spray features
  • Umbrella tables
  • Seating
  • Landscaping

These spray pads will be designed to meet accessibility standards, making them safe and inclusive for all.

You can see the spray pad layouts and renderings in the following documents:
