The leaves are quickly falling with their vibrant autumn colours as cool winds rest them gently on the ground. This year, join in and celebrate Brampton’s splendor by participating in a fall Self Guided Tour.
With many remarkable natural places to hike, run, or just sit and think about life while listening to the sounds of nature, Brampton’s Self Guided Tour offers visitors and locals alike a chance to enjoy the fall colours and serenity of the local forested destinations.
Here they are:
Conservation Drive Park
Conservation Drive Park extends between Mayfield Road to the north, and Conservation Drive, to the South. The Etobicoke Creek flows through the park winding its way south into and through downtown Brampton. This is one of the densest forests in Brampton and a lovely place to see the fall colours.
Eldorado Park has been a public recreational area since the beginning of the 1900’s.
In the early years, the site featured an amusement park with a merry-go-round and Ferris wheel. After 1917, with the introduction of the Radial railway, and through the 1920’,s the park became a very popular destination. To this day, although it is now a quiet natural setting, Eldorado Park remains a popular public recreational park. You will find great places to fish, walk, picnic, and relax along the riverbanks. Eldorado is also home to the only outdoor public pool in Brampton.
Heart Lake Conservation Area
The dense forest surrounding the lake makes you feel like you're hours away from the city when in fact, you’re right in the middle of it! Take a hike on more than eight kilometres of scenic nature trails. Look for native bird and plant species, enjoy a quiet walk, or let the kids run and climb in the playground. Book a group campsite for your Scouting, Guiding, or youth group. You can also reserve a private picnic site for a company barbecue, family reunion, or group function. Ample parking and washroom facilities are available.
