Information regarding the City of Mississauga Goose program: Along the Waterfront, the City of Mississauga has a program called Goose Roundup. It’s an annual collection of geese in Mississauga and Oakville. Working alongside Canadian Wildlife Services, the geese are collected and released at Jack Miner’s Foundation Sanctuary, where the geese enjoy their lives in a protected environment.
The City frequently sweeps the turf areas and pathways, primarily in Port Credit Memorial Park, JJ Plaus and Credit Village Marina. We also bring a contractor in to power wash the railings along Credit Village Marina when droppings get excessive.
Parks staff also utilize backpack blowers and pressure washers in many of our waterfront parks to deal with goose droppings- especially along pathways and in picnic shelters.
