Announced to the public last summer, Brampton’s first fully AODA compliant and accessible park — Creditview Activity Hub — is now open.
Located in Brampton’s northwest end, at the corner of Creditview Road and Sandalwood Parkway, the park is the first of its kind in Brampton. It’s not only part of part of Creditview Park’s 100-acre plot, making it the second biggest park in the city, it’s also fully accessible to anyone with disabilities under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act (AODA).
The Activity Hub is 85,000 square feet and equipped with play elements for children with physical, mental and emotional challenges and disabilities. Elements will include basketball, bounce wall, four square and hopscotch, swings for all ages and abilities, junior/senior climbers, slides, sand tables, and a sway ship which will be wheelchair accessible.
The park has a fully accessible splash pad with the option to customize water and spray elements.
The hub doesn’t have sand, instead, it will have artificial turf, concrete asphalt, and rubberized play area, making it easier to navigate for everyone.
The Activity Hub is the latest phase in the continued development of Creditview Park which has been under a phased construction plan since 2005.
