Lakeview, Mississauga

Lakeview, is one of the communities in Mississauga (formerly Toronto Township), in the Region of Peel, just east of Port Credit, which amalgamated into the Town of Mississauga in 1968. It is located in the extreme southeastern corner of the city. Lakeview is found along the northern shores of Lake Ontario, with an eastern boundary of Etobicoke Creek north of Lake Shore Road and the property line of the former Small Arms Division of Canadian Arsenals Ltd./Marie Curtis Park south of Lake Shore Road, and a western boundary of Cooksville Creek. Lakeview was known for the 4 Sisters, the four smokestacks of the former Lakeview Generating Station of Ontario Power Generation. They were called the 4 Sisters because the generating plant actually had eight boilers and two boilers were 'sistered' to a common stack. The generating station was demolished in 2007, about a year after the 4 Sisters stacks were demolished, which occurred on the morning of June 12, 2006. At 493 ft each they were easily the tallest structures in the area. Along the shore of Lake Ontario, Lakeview is the home of the Port Credit Yacht Club, Lakefront Promenade Marina, Lakeview Water Treatment Plant and G. E. Booth (Lakeview) Wastewater Treatment Plant. The area is also home to a Metro grocery store, a beer store (both on Lakeshore Rd.), the Lakeview Branch Library, and 3 high schools: Cawthra Park Secondary School, Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School, and St. Paul Secondary School. Many parks run along Lake Ontario, including well-lit baseball diamonds used by many junior leagues. More details on Wikipedia
