Self-Guided Tours

Charles F Watson and Family Gardens

The City of Brampton has made great strides in revitalizing our floral heritage and building a reputation as Canada's Flower City.  Brampton showcases some of the most interesting and beautiful flowerbeds and floral displays in the province.

Through our beautification program, the City has planted millions of bulbs and flowers to beautify our streets, parks, open spaces and public facilities. With over 400 roadside gardens and 1 million spring flowers, you'll see why Brampton was the 2008 Communities in Bloom International Winner!

Tourism Brampton has produced three self-guided tours that showcase the best of our city's natural and floral beauty. Complete with easy to follow directions, maps, photographs and descriptions, they are a great resource to help you explore the many natural, tranquil and beautiful floral spots that exist within Brampton.

Our Green & Fall Colours, Floral, Lakes & Rivers and the Cemetery Tours are available for download here:
