Burnhamthorpe Road West and Duke of York Blvd, Mississauga, ON
Mississauga is full of cultural and architectural landmarks — see if you can spot Celebration Square, Sheridan Campus, Kariya Park, Central Library, and other familiar sights in the mural’s landscape — but like any city, it’s the people who give Mississauga its liveliness, purpose, and vitality. A city is something we build together. This hoarding surrounds the pipes being built for the Burnhamthorpe Water Project. When the project is completed, the pipes will improve the movement of water and wastewater throughout the Region so that people can shower, flush their toilets, brush their teeth, and water their gardens.

The City of Mississauga is making the downtown core a vibrant urban destination that everyone can enjoy. The Region of Peel is building 12 kilometres of water and sanitary sewer infrastructure to support this and future growth. This public art project showcases the benefits of partners working together to help beautify public spaces during long-term construction projects.
