Meadowvale conservation area is located in the heart of the city of Mississauga. It is adjacent to the historic trail of Meadowvale. It’s great for biking hiking and having a picnic.

We spent an entire evening here. Ofcourse under current pandemic conditions its better to avoid the public facilities. You can either park right at the entrance or drive a bit further in and park closer to the trails.

A great place to walk in natural surroundings and enjoy Canada's seasonal beauty. Great for birdwatchers too, esp. at dusk..and if you're lucky you could see deer, n=brown fox or tortoise.

This conservation area is great for all types of groups and all types of activities! There is a lot of space for picnics and trails for hiking or biking. The best part is that it is completely free, but I wish there was a clear map or markings along the trails because it can be confusing. Still, this is a wonderful place to keep coming back to.

Nice park for groups to enjoy a nice picnic. Trails are ok, place was crowded with people wanting to enjoy a pleasant summer day.

Took the davidson's trail which went under 407 and next to a rail line - good place to take photos during the day, would avoid at evening or night as quite isolated.

The Meadowvale Park is located in the Meadowvale Consrevation area in Mississauga. My husbands fraternity brother sent him a video of the Salmon Run in this park so after we had our lunch to celebrate my youngest sons birthday we hied off to this park.
Finding the park was a bit tricky because it was located in an area that was unpaved. You have to watch out for the signs along the road because even with the GPS you would have to be on the lookout for the entrance road leading to the Conservation Area.The road leading to the Conservation area as well as the parking lots are unpaved and dusty. But there is ample parking space for the few people who probably frequent this park.Previous to coming here we had gone to Eldorado Park in Brampton to also take a chance of seeing the Salmon Run. We therefore easily compared the difference between the two parks. One is that Eldorado has better signages and has a bigger area compared to this park.It also doesnt have a childrens playground and Pool that Eldorado has.However just like Eldorado, Meadowvale has a lot of space for picnics and trails for hiking or biking. The best part is that it is completely free. As soon as we entered the park we headed straight to the bridge so we could watch fisherman hobbyist trying to catch fish in the shallow river.The bridge that links the camping and picnic areas to the river and walking trails is the main feature of the park. It is long and gives the best vantage point to view the river and the marsh that surrounds the river area.It also leads to the walking trails.You can spot some old trees along the river bend.This park is a bit secluded and probably known only to residents of the neighboring areas. This seclusion is a positive thing because you would have better choice of picnic grounds and ample spaces for parking unlike the popular parks in Mississauga like Erindale Park.

Beautiful clean park, lots of shade and a great place for walking, picnic and exploring. Young kids will enjoy this oasis of nature, beautiful birds and such an amazing river. Would recommend a must-see right in the heart of peel.

They really did a great job of making credit river central to the trails. The bridge is great. Plenty of parking. This place is a 4 season visit to see nature at spring summer fall and winter.

I was really excited to visit after reading so many positive reviews but was rather disappointed during my visit today. I typically walk my dog at the Greenwood Conservation Area in Ajax, Ontario so we are big fans of hiking and adventure.

The little road leading to the parking of the Conservation is very under maintained with many pot holes. I didn’t realize how deep they were until it started raining and I noticed how submerged my dog was in muddy rain puddles.

I liked how much open space there was and how a washroom is available. As a dog walker, I also appreciated how many garbage bins were located throughout the park.

What I didn’t like though was the fact that other dog owners failed to look after their dogs. There was dog waste left in several places throughout the path (in the grass, on the path and even waste bags hanging from tree branches). I continuously felt cautious where I was stepping. There is also quite a lot of litter. I had to stop my dog a couple of times from picking up solo cups, plastic and other garbage. It’s unfortunate because there are SO many trash bins available.

If everyone did their part, this park could be so much better! It is such a beautiful Conservation; but having to continuously watch out for litter and waste really ruined the experience for us.

This is an ideal place for a nice walk along the river. Many different types of birds and animals to see. The occassional fisherman and plenty of families out enjoying their time together. It is a very scenic area and GREAT for pictures .
