Recreation in Mississauga
The Hershey Centre located at 5500 Rose Cherry Place is a state-of-the-art, 5400 seat arena that hosts an impressive lineup of sports and entertainment events. The Mississauga Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League play their home games at this arena. The Hershey Centre is part of Mississauga’s Sports Zone which also includes Iceland Mississauga, a four rink ice complex, located to the south of the Hershey Centre.
The Credit River which flows through Mississauga enroute to Lake Ontario, attracts anglers from around the world for its excellent sport fishing. Chinook, Coho, Pink, and Atlantic Salmon, Steelhead, Bass and Trout are all caught in this river. The most popular fishing spot on the Credit River is situated in Erindale Park. The Credit River Valley has an extensive trail system that is enjoyed by walkers, joggers, hikers, cyclists, and cross-country skiers.
The Credit Village Marina located in historic Port Credit is run by the City of Mississauga, and offers 100% transient docking from mid May to mid September. There are 63 slips available for docking by the hour, day, or week. You may want to combine your stopover here by enjoying the picturesque waterfront cycling, and pedestrian trail, and lakeside parks of Port Credit Village.
The City of Mississauga operates far too many recreational facilities to mention by name however, these are the highlights: For skating and hockey programs there is the Meadowvale 4 Rinks and Erin Mills facilities, as well as the aforementioned Iceland Mississauga, which will be the home of Mississauga’s first skateboard park. Golfers will want to check out Britannia Hills at 5650 Terry Fox Way, and Lakeview at 1190 Dixie Road, which are both public golf courses.
Sailing and cruise boats dot the marina.
