Art Exhibit Showcases Future Lakeview Waterfront Connection

Be sure to visit Mississauga City Hall March 22 to 28

Lakeview Waterfront Connection is a joint initiative between the Region of Peel, Credit Valley Conservation and Toronto and Region Conservation that will result in a beautiful 26-hectare conservation area on the waterfront in Mississauga's Lakeview community. Watch the video on the recent progress of this unique initiative.

Morphology, a stunning art exhibit of photos that feature aquatic habitat structures built four metres below the level of Lake Ontario will be on display at Mississauga's City Hall beginning March 22 in recognition of International Water Day and will be available until March 28. Eleven photographers captured the foundation of the Serson Creek wetland that is being created through the Lakeview Waterfront Connection. The photos show what the structures look like as part of the constructed coastal wetland before they will be submerged and hidden from view.

Morphology, which was first unveiled at the Lakeview Water Treatment Plant, was the vision of the late Jim Tovey, Peel Regional Councillor for Mississauga's Ward 1. By unveiling the wetland photos at the treatment plant, the Councillor was able to visually meld the concepts of water, nature, technology and art.  It was through his advocacy, passion and dedication that the Lakeview Waterfront Connection was brought to fruition.
