It has been an unseasonably warm autumn for Brampton and the region beyond, and it’s set the fall colours back by at least a few weeks.

Thanksgiving is just days away and so far the beautiful fall foliage has been a bit of a non-event, most trees aren’t anywhere near turning yet.

In fact, peak fall colours aren’t expected to hit in this area until around October 20.

Areas to the north of Brampton like Algonquin Park and Muskoka are already in the thick of things. But provincial parks closest to Brampton, Bronte Creek and Forks of the Credit, report only about a 50 per cent change in their foliage.

So hang tight, the beautiful fall colours are on their way, you’ll just have to wait another couple of weeks. Some of the best places to enjoy fall in all of its splendour when it finally arrives are Forks of the Credit Provincial Park, Treetop Trekking’s aerial course and a bunch of other stellar places across the city.
