Starting March 26, 2020, all 500+ parks in Brampton are closed to the public, until further notice, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
• leash-free dog parks
• all outdoor sports facilities and outdoor fitness equipment
• picnic shelters
Note that trails for walking are still open, per this clarification from the city that was released on Twitter.
Closing the parks is in line with Peel Public Health’s important instructions that all Peel residents should be practicing physical distancing, which includes avoiding meeting up in public spaces.
Mayor Patrick Brown says, “We have been urging residents to maintain physical distancing, and in order to flatten the curve, we need to take on tougher measures to get the message out. It is absolutely crucial that residents understand the seriousness of this situation and importance of physical distancing and staying home at this time.”
