One benefit of living in the Sawmill Valley is the vast amounts of green space. You have lavish walking trails and parks all over the neighbourhood. The walking trails weave through the residential streets and into conservation land, the Credit River. Sawmill Creek, and Mullet Creek. In just a few steps you can go from your front door to peaceful wooded trails.
Woodchuck Green Park, Shalebank Hollow Park and Trapper's Green Park are just a few of the green spaces available for you to enjoy.
A major highlight of the area is its close proximity to the University of Toronto Mississauga campus which has vast amounts of trails and green space where you can see deer and other wildlife freely.
Other places of recreation include South Common Community Center and the Riverwood Conservancy, a unique 60 hectare (150 acre) urban oasis located in the centre of the city. Riverwood reflects the vast natural, agricultural and cultural history of Mississauga.
