Park Access Permit

When is a permit required?

A Park Access Permit is required to access your private property from a City park or trail to complete all work including landscaping, construction, tree removal, renovations and building a deck, fence repairs and installations, pool installations, or any works proposed within City parkland, trails and greenbelt lands.

Please note: A Park Access Permit is not the same as a Park Permit for Photography or a Picnic. To request one of these permits, please call 905-615-4100 or complete our online booking form.

A Park Access Permit Application form must be completed and submitted to Parks & Forestry Division along with a certificate of insurance. The certificate of insurance MUST be completed by your private insurer, with at least $2 million in coverage and identifying the City of Mississauga as an additional insured.
