The Glenerin Inn is located on The Collegeway near Mississauga Road and Dundas which is just a stone's throw away from the UofT in Mississauga in the Credit River Valley area. Beautiful old building that was built back in the 1920's - most excellent!



























Pick your own apples - just south of Eglinton along Mississauga Road

Great pics! I had never heard of that old Inn.
What is the history of that old log cabin? looks to be from around 1800...

The Glen Erin Inn! I hear it's haunted!
As the story goes ... the owner (a middle-aged proper gentleman) hung himself from a rope over a beam and at night one can hear footless steps along the hallways and smell his cigars in select rooms.

For the longest time Mississauga had the distinction of being simply a bedroom community to Toronto but times are changing; it's has become very much a business community as well. With over 52,000 companies, 425,000 employees, over 50 of the top 500 corporate Canadian head offices located in Mississauga and for the first in history more people coming into Mississauga as oppose to leaving the city to go to work, Mississauga has definitely come long way in the past 5-10 years. Here are some more examples:

Hey, that dog park off Eglinton and the 403 has been on my radar for a while now. I always noticed people on the hills when getting off the 403, yet didnt know how to get to the park. Its a lot bigger than I expected.

I find the signs posted along Eglinton (6 lane road) to be funny... "This is an off-leash area". Dogs and traffic... perfect mix!

A bit misleading, of course, but the dog-park is actually fenced-off but some people do walk their dogs off-leash in other areas of the park.

Thx. Toronto, no doubt, has many great areas to live but, depending on your circumstances, MCC might be a good alternative to take-up residence. With all that's going on in MCC, in a few years time, it's going to be a compact, highly dense urban zone with plenty of things to do and see. It is projected that up to 100,000 people will be living and 60,000 will be working in the MCC area.

If you do come back to Mississauga, welcome back

Below is the link to the Power Point presentation given at the June 24th Conversation21, Our Future Mississauga open house. It outlines a plan as to what Mississauga wants to do in the coming years. The presentation includes everything from creating a vibrant downtown, completing/connecting neighbourhoods and communities, the environment, business development, building new post-secondary institutions, transit, etc.

Sick skyline! I hope my cousins will invite my family again back to 'Sauga.

The Cawthra - Eastgate overpass intersection shot deserves to be the main pic for the Wikipedia article for Mississauga!
