The Discovery Centre is an iconic landmark on the site of Lakeview Village. Part community space, artist hub, and centre for sales, the Discovery Centre is a central gathering place and community destination for residents and visitors set against a backdrop of walkable trails and the waterfront.
------- HIGHLIGHTS ------- -Beginning in 2019, we’ve planted one million sunflowers near our award-winning Discovery Centre. What started as an opportunity to connect people from across Mississauga and the GTA with butterflies and bees through a highly immersive and natural experience, has expanded to include recreational opportunities that showcase the beauty of life by the lake.
- We built a sunflower deck where set against the backdrop of our floral field, and we’ve hosted community events like Sunsets & Sounds, which highlights the talent of local artists.
- We’ve repurposed the 1,600 feet of artist-driven hoarding that surrounded our Discovery Centre and created an artist trail that will take individuals from our sales centre into opportunities to explore art outdoors on the site.
- Chairs and benches – crafted by local sawmiller Sawmill Sid who re-purposes wood into beautiful creations.
- We’ve built a recreation field that’s open for community use - and where pick-up games of soccer can be played with friends while families enjoy a picnic.
