“Beautiful park with walking trails.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Lakeside park, really nice! There is a playground for the kids and lots of walking by the lake for the adults. Picnic tables, benches, scenery, lots of areas to stop and throw rocks into the lake. Really nice!

“Jack, you are a Darling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This park if fantastic. It offers many options for you and your kids. A group barbecue, read a book while relaxing under the sun... toss a frisbee around or just look out at Lake Ontario, this place is nice. Weekends are busy but if you can get a parking spot, you can find a little bit of peace here.

“Great place for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I love taking my dog for an outing here. The only problem was an overabundance of geese and the pellets they leave behind

“Nice Park.. difficult to find parking on weekends and holiday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

the Park itself is good and offers many places for kids to play. Parking is another issue though. We were there in Labour Day weekend and it took us good half hour to get a parking spot. Many people park not on the designated parking spot and they get ticketed.

“Very impressive! Great for the family!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Jack Darling Memorial Park is really a hidden gem in the suburban expanse that is Mississauga. The peaceful weeping willows that are surrounded by rolling mounds of green grass are well kept. There is a great playground for kids, along with a sizable splash pad to help keep the kids cool. The change room facilities were very clean for this type of setting, you always wish it could be better, but still respectable. The beach located on Lake Ontario is awesome. The water is refreshing, but the fact that you can go a solid thirty meters or so on a comfortable sand bar, makes the Jack Darling, well darling! There are plenty of picnic tables and there are grills that you can bring charcoal briquettes to have a bbq. There is plenty of space for people to co-exist with paths for bikers, walkers and dogs. It is an ideal setting to get away from the suburbs without having to leave Mississauga. I have told a number of people about Jack Darling since I have visited the park, including people who have lived in Mississauga and the surrounding 905 and they had no idea about the park. It seems that this gem is nicely under wraps. The lack of signage around the entrance and nearby intersections seems to intentionally keep Jack Darling a secret. For a family outing, or just to get away for a leisurely walk on the beach with a great view (of Toronto by the way!) then Jack Darling is a great place to accomplish this task.
