CANADA’SLONGEST PIER ONTHE GREAT LAKES
AN INDUSTRIAL LANDMARK TRANSFORMED INTO AN ICONIC DESTINATION TO CELEBRATE LOCAL FOOD AND CULTURE.
RECONNECTING YOU WITH THE WATER
- The pier is a beacon of energy on a vast inland sea. At 1km long, it beckons you to pause from routine to reflect and experience the water differently
- Revitalized 1km pier, providing sunshine and breathtaking views of the lake
- Paddle boards, kayaks, a marina and a beach: all the ways to get out and onto the water
- A new shoreline that is finally accessible by the public all year long
- A future architectural masterpiece to be admired as a distinguishable landmark on Lake Ontario
- Connected to Lakeview Square to further cultivate a rich vibrancy between these two distinct destinations
Here, you are energized by music festivals, art fairs, eatery pop-ups, and family boat trips. Walk from the pier to the nearby coastal wetlands to see bees, trees, and butterflies; or head to the beach–ice cream cone in hand.
Turn west and see bays, marinas, and parkland – the magic of Mississauga; look eastward and witness the lights of Toronto. During the day, it is alive with people making memories. At night, the pier glistens as its lights reflect on the water, drawing many from near and afar.
Great Lakes shipping created this pier. It is one of the longest in Canada, forged through an extensive history. Container ships came here, sailing on to distant ports on our lakes and around the world. To be restored and rejuvenated, the pier will be a place for perspective and a destination to celebrate.
