Like many of the neighbourhoods in Mississauga, Port Credit was once a village of its own before joining the city in 1974. As far back as the 1700s residents focused on the export of lumber and grain, and in the 19th century it became known for the stone pulled from its harbour and used in local buildings. Now home to several of the city's most popular restaurants, this cultural hub is defined by its waterfront and park space at the mouth of the Credit River, including a large marina and a canoe club. Port Credit hosts several major festivals throughout the year, including the Mississauga Waterfront Festival, the Southside Shuffle Blues & Jazz Festival, comedy and busker festivals, and a variety of art shows. One of the most walkable neighbourhoods in Mississauga, it is ideal for residents who enjoy easily accessible entertainment amenities and outdoor spaces.
