City Of Mississauga
Canada’s 6th largest city is located beside Toronto on the shores of Lake Ontario, and is home to Pearson International Airport, Toronto’s main airport. Known for its wealth of commerce and industry, it is the innate beauty of Mississauga that surprises visitors. Wide river valleys thick with trees and other ‘green belts’ dot the city, all popular with residents. Bike paths and bike lanes, numerous parks and arenas and the beautiful Waterfront Trail encourage recreation and good health. Long-time mayor, Hazel McCallion, would call it a ‘vibrant’ city.
Tour its renowned architecture, take in a round of golf, or relax with a treatment at one of its many spas. Explore its quaint historic villages, visit the bustling waterfront, or inspire yourself with Mississauga’s world-class art and theatre at the Living Arts Centre. Visit the Rhododendron Gardens, watch the salmon migration in the Credit River, or shop at Square One – Ontario’s largest shopping mall. From stunning architecture and museums to lakefront parks and vibrant ethnic neighbourhoods, Mississauga offers a range of experiences that keep visitors – and runners – coming back again and again.

Make some time to visit these great spots:

  • Play a round of golf at one of Mississauga’s golf courses including the historic Lakeview Golf Course or BraeBen Golf Course
  • Take a gallery tour at the Art Gallery of Mississauga or the Living Arts Centre located in close proximity to the Mississauga Marathon start line
  • Great shopping can be found in the city centre at Square One shopping Centre and in the village on the lake; Mississauga’s scenic Port Credit
