Charges could be laid after more than 500 people showed up to a massive “makeshift nightclub” in a Brampton park last weekend.

Around 8:40 p.m. on Sunday (Aug. 14), City of Brampton says bylaw enforcement officers were called to Brampton’s White Spruce Park located at 10302 Heart Lake Road after receiving noise complaints.


When officers arrived they found a large fenced in staging area where people were lining up to enter “a makeshift nightclub,” the City said in a statement to inSauga.com.

The pop-up venue was playing loud music, and food and alcohol were being illegally sold to attendees.

The City confirmed a permit had been issued “for a family function of up to 400 people” in the park on Sunday, but the crowd was estimated at over 500 people.
The City also says vehicles were illegally parked on the grass in the park.

Security Services and City staff attended the location to assist, and Peel Regional Police were also notified to assist and take the lead in managing the crowd “given the number of attendees in the park.”

A Peel Regional Police spokesperson confirmed officers were called on Sunday to assist bylaw enforcement, and said no criminal charges were laid.

An investigation into the pop-up club is ongoing, and bylaw charges may be laid in relation to the incident.
