Brampton has quickly become Canada’s 11th largest city and fastest growing municipality in the GTA, now home to over half a million residents. This bustling metropolis is home to some of Canada’s top corporations, fueled by a leading transit system known as Zum which offers residents connectivity throughout Brampton and the rest of the GTA. The housing boom in the 1980s brought massive expansion with housing developments stretching toward its borders. An extensive parkland trail and sidewalk system connects the entire community. Charming downtown, major shopping centers, sports complexes, parks, lakes and conservation areas as well as arts, culture and recreation facilities provide Brampton residents with a comprehensive community to live, grow and enjoy. Continued revitalization initiatives reflect the social, economic and cultural identity of Brampton.
September 2007, the Rose Theatre opened its doors in downtown Brampton, attracting an overwhelming audience of over 137K patrons in its first season alone. As hoped, the theatre has become a catalyst for downtown revitalization attracting new businesses, several high-rise residential condominium projects and reinvigorated existing businesses providing patrons with renovated storefronts. Garden Square which is just outside of the Rose Theatre is scheduled for completion in Fall 2014. The renewed square will provide year-long entertainment, events, socializing and improved pedestrian experience.
In addition to the immense selection of activity offerings throughout Brampton’s city-run recreation facilities, Brampton is also home to numerous indoor and outdoor sports and recreation amenities including the South Fletchers Sportsplex, the Powerade Centre and Wild Water Kingdom. These amenities give Brampton residents a convenient outlet for entertainment, fitness and fun.
Brampton’s cultural identity lies far beyond the multicultural landscape of its residents who now have over 23 languages to choose from in schools under both the public and catholic school board. Brampton residents have the pleasure of furthering their cultural and artistic interests with a range of galleries and museums including the Peel Art Gallery Museum & Archives, the Artway Gallery and the Great War Flying Museum.
Despite Brampton’s’ rapid growth, the city has still maintained extensive parkland and conservation areas including Clairville Conservation Area, Heart Lake Conservation Area, Gage Park, Chinguacausy Park and Professor’s Lake which is a man-made spring-fed lake providing residents with summer fun.
With Brampton’s long list of amenities and attractions, it’s not surprising that it has become the fastest-growing city in the GTA. Brampton is poised for continued growth as further infrastructure and stimulus funding fuels expansion of transit, recreation, healthcare and downtown amenities. New housing communities which are more responsive to the changing needs of families are being seen throughout Brampton, so if you’re looking for a new house in a vibrant and responsive community, don’t rule out Brampton!
