This time of year is great for exploring Brampton’s outdoor parks and trails with friends and family.

Whether you’re in the mood to enjoy a quiet afternoon walk or take some beautiful winter photos, residents have many options located throughout the city.

Here are five places to take a winter nature walk in Brampton.

Chinguacousy Park

The Chinguacousy Recreational Trail goes through various Brampton neighbourhoods, from Victoria Park in Bramalea and extends north to Dixie Rd. and Countryside Dr.

This trail is a great option for those who want to get their steps in after enjoying holiday meals.

Don Doan Trail

Formerly known as Professor’s Lake Recreational Trail, this trail runs parallel to Chinguacousy Recreational Trail.

This trail takes you through the east side of Bramalea neighbourhoods with wayfinding signs navigating visitors north to Brampton’s beach at Professor’s Lake.

While it’s too cold to go for a swim, it’s a great area to snap some winter photos.

Esker Lake Recreational Trail

The Esker Lake Recreational Trail takes residents into some of Brampton’s parks, green spaces and conservation areas. While there isn’t much greenery to see this time of year, it’s a great place to enjoy the brisk weather.

Fletcher’s Creek Recreational Trail

The Fletcher’s Creek Recreational Trail has a paved recreational trail maintained year-round that runs north to south through the west side of Brampton. The trail starts at Wanless Dr. and ends at Highway 407.

Following the Fletcher’s Creek trail will enable residents to see the Chris Gibson Recreation Centre, Flower City Community Campus and South Fletcher’s Sportsplex.

Etobicoke Creek Trail 

This recreational trail is great for a quiet and peaceful walk.

A two-kilometre-long connection fills a gap in the trail between Brampton and Mississauga, which allows safe passage under Highway 407 and Highway 410, from the Kennedy Road Trail entrance to the city limit.

So, bundle up and grab a friend or some headphones and enjoy the tranquillity of this trail.
