The Parks Maintenance and Operations Department at the City of Brampton follows defined levels of service within our Parks and Open space system. The primary goal is to ensure consistency in the maintenance of our parks.
Sports fields: High profile fields are maintained to a higher level of quality than regular fields. These high profile fields will have little to no irregularities and they will often have irrigation systems. All sports fields will be inspected on a regular basis, which will include any lighting at these locations. Those sports fields that are not high profile will have routine maintenance which will sustain safety and playability. There are inspections done regularly on all city-permitted fields.
Winter Maintenance: Our goal is to plow and sand park recreational trails and easements within 48 hours of the completion of a snow event. There is no winter maintenance on non-paved recreational trails. Priority winter maintenance for the Parks Maintenance and Operations department are the Fire Station parking lots and recreation centre parking lots.
Playgrounds: All new playground installations must meet current CSA guidelines for playgrounds. The equipment will be inspected monthly to ensure it is fully functional, structurally sound, free of loose bolts or screws, sharp edges, protrusions, and deterioration.
