I would like to update you about the upcoming construction at Thorncrest Park!
Thorncrest Park will soon be home to a new double tennis court that will offer more space for Mississauga residents to enjoy tennis or even pickleball as the courts will be lined for both sports.
Construction is planned for this fall and is expected to last approximately 6-8 weeks, weather permitting. The project supports the 2019 Future Directions Master Plan to fill in a geographic gap in the area.
Concept design highlights include:

Please be advised that a section of the Sawmill Valley Trail south of Burnhamthorpe Rd. will be closed daily from 7am to 5pm for repairs to the boardwalk. The closure will affect access to the trail from Swallowdale Court and Sawmill Valley Dr. to the Collegeway. The trail will be made safe and re-opened to the public at the end of each work day.
Service Disruption signs were installed during the week of October 22nd to alert the public. The work will be starting October 31st. Additional Service Disruption signs will be installed on the fence at each construction closure point.
The work will be carried out over the next three to four (3 -4) weeks weather permitting.
Serve Construction Ltd. is scheduled to implement the reconstruction of the existing trail in Crawford Green Park. The existing trail is in poor condition and is due for life cycle replacement which will also be upgraded from 2.4m wide to 3.0 m to meet current trail standards. Funding for this project is partially provided through the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF). It is anticipated that completion of this work will be in late April pending weather.
