RATTRAY MARSH CONSERVATION AREA
A Lake Ontario Wetland

Location:
Mississauga waterfront, west of Southdown Road. Walking access from Jack Darling Municipal Park. Limited parking and access at Old Poplar Row.

Rattray Marsh is an "environmental gem" located in a unique natural setting within the City of Mississauga. As the last remaining lakefront marsh between Toronto and Burlington, this environmentally sensitive wetland offers a different experience for nature lovers. Located just west of Port Credit, Rattray Marsh is home to a variety of wildlife and plants and a definite must for avid bird watchers, photographers and nature lovers.

Credit Valley Conservation, along with local residents and other interest groups have implemented numerous trail upgrades in order to preserve the area's many sensitive features. Raised platforms allow for wider and higher pathways designed to keep visitors on the main trails and the natural areas undisturbed.

Secured by Credit Valley Conservation in 1972, and officially opened in 1975, Rattray represents many things to its visitors. Some remember how it was save from the developer who planned to fill it in and build homes, while others remember it as a living classroom where they came for guided tours to learn about nature.
