Even though there is a lack of shopping in Erindale, it still has plenty of activities available to its residents in the form of parks, community centres and even a private golf course.
A nature lovers dream in the city; Erindale is known for its picturesque green space and trails and is home to two of Mississauga’s best parks: Erindale Park and Riverwood Park.
Erindale Park is a 222-acre park rife with picnic areas, green space, grills, trails, toboggan space and more which is a great amenity for the area. The lesser known Rivverwood Park is a hidden neighbourhood gem: an urban oasis rife with wetlands, creeks, ravines, trails, wildlife and bordered by the Credit River on the west side. The park is also home to the Riverwood Conservancy which encapsulates some incredible heritage structures: 1919 Chappell House, MacEwan Field Station, MacEwan Barn and the new MacEwan Perrenial Garden that was added in 2012 (where over 160 different bird species have been identified).
The Erindale Go Station is another great amenity to the neighbourhood – running on the Milton Line to Union Station downtown Toronto. The Milton Go Line is not the most direct or fastest route into the city, but does beat sitting in that GTA traffic on your way to and from work if your place of business is in Toronto.
