On the grounds of Metropolitan Andrei Catholic School in Mississauga.



Lovely day for some geohashing! I took the subway to Kipling and then the MiWay (Mississauga transit) bus to the hashpoint. The transfer from the subway to the bus was underground, but my transit app was confused, so I ended up getting lost and walking up to street level and over to the other entrance building. It was my first time in the MiWay/GO terminal at Kipling, which is recently-constructed. It's a nice building, with some pretty murals!

The bus ride was pretty smooth and dropped me off directly in front of the school where the hashpoint was. After standing by a brick wall and snapping a couple photos, I took the opportunity to explore this part of Mississauga. I took a walk through a really nice series of parks and footpaths. A lot of people were out on this gorgeous day! One of the paths I took follows Cooksville Creek, a small river which eventually drains into Lake Ontario. I went the other direction, though, and arrived at downtown Mississauga, a densely-populated area that would probably be quite nice except for the absolutely horrible pedestrian experience. I had planned on maybe spending some time here, but I saw that my infrequent bus home was showing up soon, so I took that instead.
