In light of the evolving situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have cancelled all events scheduled between March 16 and April 30. The park remains open to visitors, but physical distancing of at least two metres (six feet) is vital to your presence at Riverwood. Groups and gatherings are prohibited. Only visit with members of your household, and stay home if you're sick. If distancing requirements are not followed, the City of Mississauga may be forced to close the park entirely. Thank you for enjoying nature while keeping the safety of our community in mind.
