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.
