Lake Wabukayne is a hidden jewel in the city of Mississauga. Located north of the intersection of Erin Mills Parkway and Britannia, Lake Wabukayne is actually a storm management pond built back in the ‘70s. The lake is encompassed by a naturalized area that is home to diverse species of birds and wildlife. The Wabukayne park trail also surrounds the water. With extensive walking paths, it’s a great destination to stroll or jog through and enjoy the calm and serene environment.
