March Break in Brampton has officially kicked off, and if you’re looking for ways to keep the kids—or yourself—entertained without breaking the bank, this is the list for you. Here are 10 free and cheap things to do in Brampton this week.

Enjoy a rec centre

During March Break recreation centres across the city will have a bunch of activities going on. The city’s covered outdoor rink at Gore Meadows will also be open. Due to the warmer weather, outdoor skating trails like Gage Park and Chinguacousy likely won’t be open, though.


During March Break you could be cruising around 90s style on roller skates. RollerPlex is extending its hours and is open 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. all week except for Thursday — there’s an adult skate from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. that night.


Aerosports trampolining is open all March Break and they recently revamped their space. The kids could be jumping on huge trampolines, going through ninja courses, and lots more all day long at Aerosports.

Mini golf and laser tag

Glow Zone 360’s laser tag arena and glow-in-the-dark mini golf course will be open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. during March Break. They also have an arcade and free WiFi for parents who just want to hang out while the kids have fun.

Virtual reality arcade

Ctrl V opened last fall in the plaza at Queen and Kennedy as Brampton’s first virtual reality arcade. Enjoy virtual reality games like Beat Saber, Arizona Sunshine and more. The arcade is ideal for kids and adults alike.

Rock climbing

For a little indoor adventure check out Toprock Climbing. The gym has bouldering walls at different skill levels for kids and adults, and an auto-belay wall.

Board game marathon

Wildcard Board Game Cafe is open all week and they have hundreds of board games to enjoy. For a few bucks per person, you could be playing all off the board game classics with the whole fam. They also have tasty snacks to keep you fueled.
