The Lisgar Residents' Association (LRA) was founded in 1991 to build and promote the Lisgar community. The LRA's vision for the area focuses on a three-part strategy: Community, Stewardship, and Advocacy.
The original dream that brought the group together was to improve a proposed plan for a concrete ditch into a naturalized area. Osprey Marsh was developed, which won the Urban Design Award in 2006. It is a water filtration pond system, incorporating natural habitat for many plants and animals and surrounded by a walking path.
The LRA has been responsible for saving eight hectares of mature forest beside the greenbelt.
In 2000, the LRA began working with the City on the restoration of the 175 year old Kindree Cemetery. Completed in 2004, this historic landmark is now a well-kept public place.
The LRA has worked in conjunction with the City of Mississauga, with grants from TD Canada Trust Friends of the Environment, Rotary, and The Trillium Foundation to help will the Lisgar area with indigenous trees and wildflowers. Hundreds of trees, shrubs and flowers are planted each year at the annual tree planting, often in May.
Our goal is also that all residents will feel connected to their community. We want to make Lisgar Meadow Brook a common area where residents can meet, plan, relax and appreciate the community. Ownership can be achieved by being involved as a volunteer or a member of the executive.
How do I become part of LRA? If you live south of Hwy 401, west of Tenth Line, north of Britannia, and east of 407 ETR, you are a part of the Lisgar community.
The LRA is here to help you get involved in making your community a better and safe place to live.
