Jefferson, Jordan, and Jayfield (JJJ) Parks are three adjacent parks with a concrete channel flowing through them. The parks have a west-east linear orientation and are connected to each other by the Don Doan Trail.
Toronto & Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) identified the concrete channel within these parks as a priority project as part of its Peel Channel Remediation program. The TRCA plans to remove the concrete lining within the channel and re-naturalize the creek and its banks to improve water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and reduce maintenance costs.
As part of the Brampton Eco Park Strategy
, the City of Brampton investigated opportunities to partner with the TRCA and refresh Jefferson, Jordan, and Jayfield Parks in conjunction with the scheduled channel works.
Public engagement took place in 2019 to help inform the Eco Space
design for each park. The final design was guided by public input and the Eco Park Strategy.
Construction is planned to begin in October 2020 and completed by the end of 2022. Click here
