Developed with extensive feedback from residents, the City of Brampton endorsed the Parks and Recreation Master Plan 5-Year Review and Update (PRMP).

“We are thrilled to endorse the Parks and Recreation Master Plan 5-Year Review and Update, which reflects our commitment to fostering active and healthy lifestyles for all residents of Brampton. With our city’s population expected to continue to grow significantly in the coming years, this plan provides a comprehensive roadmap to enhance our green spaces and recreational facilities, ensuring Brampton remains vibrant and residents are active for generations to come.”

Brampton’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a 15-year guiding document for the delivery of parks, open space, recreation, and sports facilities to promote active and healthy lifestyles. It serves as a comprehensive roadmap aimed at enhancing the city’s parkland and recreational facilities. The City undertook a five-year review and update of the 2017 Council-endorsed PRMP.

With Brampton’s population growth rate rising as the fastest among Canada’s 25 largest cities, the five-year update to the PRMP highlights key areas of growth across the city and makes recommendations to keep up with Brampton’s rapid pace of growth. The updated plan includes new recommendations to enhance parks and recreation in Brampton, such as expanding parklands, introducing urban parks, building new recreation centres, establishing additional youth hubs, and revitalizing existing recreation infrastructure. City staff will continue to work toward implementing these recommendations.

Community feedback was integral to the successful development of the updated Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The City of Brampton thanks everyone who shared their thoughts and ideas and is committed to working together with residents to ensure current and future needs for parks and recreation in Brampton are met.
