What's around Meadowvale Theatre, Mississauga

Tips for a great family outing!
I scouted the surroundings of Meadowvale Theatre for you (on line). Here are a few tips to make the most of your visit in the area before or after a family show (they have quite a line-up of family show for 2014-2015).

Best parking options
There's plenty of free parking around the theatre. Parking won't be a problem.

Want them to burn off some energy?
Kids can sit still through a good show; you just need to wear them out first! You know your kids. If you feel they'd better enjoy the show after a stretch in the park, take them to Lake Aquitaine Park (a 5-minute walk from the theatre, keep walking north on Montevideo and you'll see it on your left). A 1.4 km trail runs around the large pond called Lake Aquitaine and it includes six exercice stations, a playground on its east side (closer to Montevideo Road) and a splash pad on the south section with the belvedere (and washrooms).

The park is filled with birds chirping loud, and visited by people of all ages. During my own visit on a week day, I saw runners, moms with strollers, lineskaters, bikers, old couples strolling slowly, young adults walking swiftly, water bottle in hand, and teens hanging out and chatting. 

There were many picnic tables all around, the perfect place to it a take-out. 

You'll find different options at the Battleford Centre just .5 km from Meadowvale Theatre at the corner of Battleford Road and Erin Mills Pkwy: fish & chips, Asian food, Indian restaurant, Tim Hortons, Wendy's, Harveys, Swiss Chalet, PIzza Hut.
