Renovations are complete and the park has re-opened!  Using equal funding from the City of Brampton, Province of Ontario and Government of Canada, $24.5M has been infused to revitalize this destination.  Come for the day and explore the formal gardens and lush greenhouse; stroll the pathways surrounding the ponds; visit the barn and petting zoo. Pack a picnic lunch or enjoy refreshments at the convenient food concession. The entire family is invited to play a challenging round of mini-putt. Young children will laugh with delight as they play at the new playground or splash pad.


Teens are encouraged to bring their bikes and boards to one of Canada’s top rated BMX and skateboard parks. Throughout the summer months play a fast paced game of beach volleyball; join friends at the tennis court, achieve your fitness goals at the track or relax as a spectator at our state-of-the-art sports field.  Come back when the snow falls to ski, snowboard, or tube down our popular hill, and then rest in our new chalet!  Every season presents new opportunities and special events.

Community Forest

Brampton’s Community Forest is an exciting partnership between the City of Brampton and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, with the generous support of Trees Ontario, Tree Canada and the Region of Peel. Working together, we are creating a forest along Etobicoke Creek, in the heart of the city. It will showcase healthy urban forests and leave a legacy for future generations.

Located at Elgin Woods Park, on the west side of Hurontario Street south of Elgin Drive, this forest serves as a recreational destination and a naturalized area.
