A beautiful quiet haven in the heart of Mississauga. It is a place to relax, reflect and enjoy the geese swimming around. There is no kids play area, but kids get really excited about seeing the fish and the geese. Lots of benches to sit and relax, and the garden is maintained very well.

This secluded park, near the very busy Mississauga City Center, provides a beautiful, and restful spot for a romantic walk or picnic. Very nicely maintained Japanese gardens with water way, and art. A great little getaway spot.

Beautiful spot for taking photos, nature walk, or just get some peace and quiet right in the city, any time of year. It's located just a short walk from square one shopping centre.

Visited this park, along with my husband last Sunday. Kariya Park is a quaint Japanese garden tucked just across from the busy Square One Shopping Centre, however, you would hardly know you were near such a noisy and busy place when you step foot inside this calm and quiet park.. The park is free to enter, however there is not... More

Nice quiet place to get away right in the middle of the city. Step through the gate and forget everything.

This park is a decent spot for photo moments. Capture your wedding memories, engagement etc. Be on notice that a permit may be required. Check with the city to avoid any fines.

Small quiet little park not far from square one shopping centre. If you need a quiet moment or solace from the everyday hustle and bustle this is the place to get your zen back
