Brampton is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada. It is a suburban city that sits to the west of Toronto and today has a major economic sector. In the past, Brampton’s main industry was the greenhouse industry, pegging it as ‘The Flower Town of Canada’.
Today, Brampton is a thriving city, though it is not known as a tourist destination. Still, there is plenty to see and do in the city itself, as well as nearby, so it should not be overlooked.
Lets explore the best things to do in Brampton:
1. Visit a park
Brampton’s oldest park, Gage Park is open year-round and has been since 1903. The park is known for its circular walkway, that, in the winter, is turned into a skating rink.
Gage Park is a stunning park that features gazeboes, a fountain, large trees and floral gardens. In the summer, the wading pool and children’s play area are open, and it also hosts free evening concerts.
Skate along the trail in the winter, or jog, cycle or in-line skate along it throughout the rest of the year. If you didn’t bring ice skates with you, you can rent them onsite.
