There are two generally accepted descriptions of the boundaries of the Lorne Park area of Mississauga.
The traditional and original boundaries are bordered by Lake Ontario on the south, Lakeshore Road on the north, Jack Darling Park on the west and Richard’s Memorial Park on the East. This land was at one time operated by the Toronto Park Association as a resort area. It housed separate parlors for men and women, bowling lanes and merry-go-rounds. Travel to the resort from Toronto was often by steamer or train or carriage. It is now known as Lorne Park Estates.
The Toronto Real Estate Board defines Lorne Park as QEW to the north, Lake Ontario to the south, Credit River to the east and a diagonal line from the east side of Jack Darling Park north up to Clarkson Road and the QEW.

Rattray Marsh is home to a variety of wildlife and plants and a definite must see for avid bird watchers, photographers and nature lovers.

Historically the area has seen many changes. The land was first occupied by the Mississaugas, and then in 1805 it was transferred to Governor John Graves Simcoe. This area of land housed a significant stand of pines, was slated to be used for its wood as resources for the British Empire. However the lumber was not required and the land remained intact and became a subject of interest. First by individuals of the British military who wished to settle, and then by sundry businessmen and investors. Its legal ownership in the 1800s and early 1900s changed hands many times, ultimately resulting in the owners taking charge of the community before its designation came under city jurisdiction. Currently, owners have postal, garbage and water service, while road, parks and sewage are handled by the association or the individuals.
