City of Brampton endorses Parks and Recreation Master Plan 5-Year Review and Update

​BRAMPTON, ON (June 20, 2024) – Developed with extensive feedback from residents, the City of Brampton endorsed the Parks and Recreation Master Plan 5-Year Review and Update (PRMP)

Brampton’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a 15-year guiding document for the delivery of parks, open space, recreation and sports facilities to promote active and healthy lifestyles and serves as a comprehensive roadmap aimed at enhancing the city's parkland and recreational facilities. The City undertook a five-year review and update of the 2017 Council-endorsed PRMP.

With Brampton’s population growth rate rising the fastest of Canada’s 25 largest cities, the five-year update to the PRMP highlights key areas of growth across the city and makes recommendations to keep up with Brampton’s rapid pace of growth. The updated plan includes new recommendations to enhance parks and recreation in Brampton, which include expanding parklands, introducing urban parks, new recreation centres, establishing additional youth hubs and revitalizing existing recreation infrastructure in the city. City staff will continue to work toward a plan to implement the recommendations in the plan. 

Community feedback was an integral component in the successful development of the updated Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The City of Brampton thanks everyone who shared their thoughts and ideas and is committed to working together with residents to ensure the current and future needs for parks and recreation in Brampton are met.
