Family Friendly Neighbourhoods in Brampton

 

Brampton is a great place to raise kids. Close to the beautiful Credit Valley, yet near enough to Toronto to be considered part of the GTA, this city of more than half a million residents is one of the fastest-growing and most diverse municipalities in Canada. The city has plenty of the kinds of amenities that are important to families, including:

 

  • Recreation facilities. Brampton has ice rinks, swimming pools, tennis courts, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, football fields, and many other sports facilities available for family use. The city has twenty-five community recreation centres, with various types of spaces and facilities such as gymnasiums, meeting rooms, playgrounds, and more.

 

  • Parks. Brampton has more than forty parks, with over 4,000 acres of parkland! Included are more than 90 kilometres of walking, cycling, and multi-use trails. And of course, Brampton borders on the amazing Credit Valley ecosystems, which include deciduous forest, Carolinian forest, and are enriched by the Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine.

 

  • Libraries. Brampton’s six libraries offer numerous services to patrons, including children’s programs, e-books and audiobooks, computer use, and meeting rooms.

 

  • Schools. Both the Peel District School Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board have many schools that rate highly on the province’s EQAO measurements.
