Beautiful park in Mississauga. Free parking close to the water, plenty of picnic area, play scape for children in close proximity, 2 small beaches for swimming. Has a "Centre Island" type of vibe without the trouble of travelling on the ferry.

We regularly take our dog to the Jack Darling off-leash dog park, and we feel so lucky that such a park exists. There is a lot of ground to cover and the little rocks help to absorb the mud during rainy weather. The stairs are a great way to burn some extra calories. Overall, a five-star location for pooches.

We had our college reunion at this park last August 2014. And I must say from the moment we arrived to the time we left the place, we loved every part of this park. There is no entry fee to this park and they have lots of parking as well, however if you want a good spot you definitely have... More

The beach Front walk way is connected to the park. Nice location for a walk along the water. Flower are out in the summer and they have wash-rooms.

I love Jack Darling. Huge difference from when I was a kid. Now there are two playgrounds and a splash pad for my neice and nephew and the water is clean enough to swim. Before I had a dog, I loved walking through the pathways and losing myself. Now that I have a dog, I go almost every weekend in... More

This is a great spot to walk to Rattray Marsh although there is lots to see here. There is a great kids splash pad, washrooms and great views of Lake Ontario and Toronto.

Park with beach and Lake Ontario Cold for swimming I don't like that there is a fee for parking . It is difficult to get there by transit so parking fee is a money grab by the city

This park is at the bottom of my street and cars are parked in front of my house on hot summer weekends. I don't begrudge that. There is not enough parking for all those that need to escape a non air-conditioned apartment on a hot summer day. One can swim in Lake Ontario, skip the flat stones at the end... More

When you go to Jack Darling, you are making the conscious decision to take time out of your day to go and smell sewer water. But guess what, the flowers around you, the people you see, the hot dog stands around you take those sewer smells away.

I think my first time there (or was it 3rd over 9 years - who keeps track?) was when I went to a church barbecue. The scenery is beautiful but I always give nature a positive rating.
