Nicknamed ‘The Flower City,’ for its blooming abundance of flora and annual ‘Flower City Parade’ held every June, Brampton is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities. Located adjacent to Toronto, Brampton is home to over half a million people.
To escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto, pay a visit to one of Brampton’s many parks. From skating on Gage Park’s converted winter walkways to relaxing on the grassy summer plains of the Donald M. Gordon Chinguacousy Park, Brampton blossoms with activity year-round.
For the more intensive outdoorsperson, try a hike through Brampton’s Heart Lake Conservation Area. Or try your luck fishing on Heart Lake itself. Brampton’s favourite fishing hole is stocked twice a year with rainbow trout.
If you’re looking to escape the outdoors, try visiting Brampton’s Peel Art Gallery, housed in the historical Peel County Courthouse, to check out some colourful local art. For nighttime entertainment, see what is playing at Brampton’s Rose Theatre.
