Downtown Brampton lies within the Etobicoke Creek floodplain. Provincial policies around hazard management restrict the type and amount of development that can occur there today.

Riverwalk will be a transformative opportunity to help revitalize Brampton’s downtown and make it healthy, sustainable and resilient. It starts with engineering an innovative long-term solution to the flood risk, which will unlock the potential for urban growth and development. In turn, it will put the creek back at the heart of downtown, creating a vibrant new space that provides a distinct identity for the city.​



The City invites residents to participate in its second Riverwalk Area Urban Design Master Plan Public Information Session on Wednesday, March 17th at 6:30 pm. See the project Have Your Say page.
