BRAMPTON: The City of Brampton, in partnership with the Downtown Brampton Business Improvement Area, has introduced two new parklettes in the downtown for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The City transformed three parking spaces into public seating areas complete with greenery where residents can safely socialize.

The two parklettes are located in front of 38 and 40 Main Street North and 64 Main Street North (in front of Vivian Lane). The structures will remain in place until November 1.

In May, Brampton City Council approved Brampton’s Economic Recovery Strategy, which includes actions to support small businesses, restaurants, and tourism. The City has launched several new initiatives, including its Support Local Brampton campaign and Patio Brampton program.

Where possible, residents are encouraged to Shop, Eat, Gift, and Support Local.

Mayor Patrick Brown said: “We have transformed programming, services, and spaces to support our residents and businesses…We are always looking for new ways for people to safely enjoy the best that Brampton offers.”

Martin Medeiros, Regional Councillor, Wards 3 & 4; Chair, Planning, and Development; Lead, Mayor’s Reopening and Recovery Working Group, City of Brampton, said: “Thank you
to the Brampton BIA for their partnership on this project. These new parklettes support our City’s reopening and recovery strategy by providing new and safe public spaces for residents to enjoy.”
