Brampton’s parks and recreation facilities and services are vital to the personal, community, social and economic well-being of residents in Brampton. Investment in infrastructure and programming requires money. The City of Brampton can only collect money from limited sources such as property taxes, development charges and other development related processing fees (e.g. cash-in-lieu of parkland). The PRMP provides recommendations on how best to allocate these resources, taking into account all of the information collected throughout in the development of the plan - information such as: feedback from the public and stakeholders; data on how our facilities are being used; population and growth projections; quantitative and qualitative analysis on our indoor and outdoor facilities; revenue projections; etc. The PRMP establishes target service levels for parks, open space, sports and recreation facilities (outdoor and indoor), having regard for current service levels, emerging trends, projected growth and parks and open space hierarchy.
