The Second Annual
MISSISSAUGA GARDEN FESTIVAL
The Gardens of Credit Woodlands
Sunday, June 24, 10am to 4 pm
A paid tour of 10 private gardens is the highlight of this year’s Mississauga Garden Festival, but at its centrepiece are the free family-oriented activities at Riverwood, Mississauga’s unique, 60-hectare (150-acre) nature park located in central Mississauga, near Credit Woodlands.
Riverwood, on the banks of the Credit River, has a rich geological history of ancient seas and glacial events, and a fossil record that dates back 415 million years. Not quite a century ago it was the site of a beautiful stone summer home that still stands on the property, plus a farm and a pickle processing facility. It features regular bird treks, wildflower walks and indigenous days.
An artisan marketplace, food vendors, children’s activities and talks—the popular Paul Zammit appears again this year—are some of the festival events. Tours of the Riverwood’s MacEwan Terrace Gardens and the Enabling Garden are also included.
The 10 private gardens on the paid, self-guided tour include ravine gardens, woodland and naturalized gardens that reflect the area, plus imaginative front yard gardens and spectacular outdoor living areas.
The Cloverleaf and Applewood garden clubs have been joined this year by the Credit Valley Horticultural Society to present the annual Festival.
