Port Credit River
RIDGETOWN, Lake Bulk Freighter built in 1905, at a cost of $475,000, by the Chicago Shipbuilding Co. The RIDGETOWN operated regularly until November 17, 1969 when she was laid up at Toronto with a load of grain. On June 21, 1974 the RIDGETOWN was loaded with stone and again sunk as a breakwater at the entrance to Port Credit Harbour (on the north shore of Lake Ontario just west of Toronto) with her cabins and stack still in place. She remains there to this time.
Lakefront Promenade Park is a project by the City of Mississauga and the Credit Valley Conservation Authority, named after two of its most prominent features: a location at the water's edge and leisure walkways. One of the largest waterfront developments in Ontario with more than 40 hectares (104 acres) of public parkland dedicated to outdoor recreation and the protection of wildlife habitat. Park amenities include a protected harbour with two marina facilities, outdoor licensed eatery, a playground area that features a water splash pad, boardwalks, picnic shelters, cycling paths, and concession facilities.
The city is intersected by three rivers and numerous tributaries: the Humber River in the west end and the Don River east of downtown at opposite ends of the Toronto Harbour, and the Rouge River at the city's eastern limits. The harbour was naturally created by sediment buildup from lake currents that created the Toronto Islands. The many creeks and rivers cutting from north toward the lake created large tracts of densely forested ravines, and provide ideal sites for parks and recreational trails.
