Representing people from 209 distinct ethnic backgrounds speaking 89 different languages, Brampton is not only one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, but is also one of the most diverse. Brampton is a young city, expressed in the vibrant restaurant scene, eclectic festivals, and numerous sporting and outdoor activities.
This youthful enthusiasm is evident at Chinguacousy Park, a delightful find in the heart of Brampton, featuring a petting zoo, splash pad, paddle boats, and mini golf. In winter, scale Mount Chinguacousy, known as Mount Ching, to ski, snowboard, or go tubing in the fresh powder.
Downtown Brampton is a pedestrian-friendly destination, perfect for shopping and dining. In the summer, watch an outdoor movie in Garden Square or stroll Main Street on a Saturday to experience the extensive farmers’ market. Brampton is known as Canada’s Flower City, and nowhere is that more evident than Gage Park, the area’s oldest municipal park.
With its iconic gazebo and gardens, it’s the perfect tranquil space. Here, summer events such as outdoor concerts and food festivals fill the air with music and delicious scents, and in colder months the park is transformed into a winter wonderland with twinkling lights and an artificial skating rink.
