The City is creating two new youth hubs for residents of Brampton between the ages of 14 and 29.

These hubs will be located at Century Gardens Recreation Centre at 340 Vodden Street East, and the Susan Fennell Sportsplex at 500 Ray Lawson Boulevard.

Both locations will feature programming specifically targeted toward the city’s youth, including cultural activities; programs related to personal development, and health and wellness; and activities such as pickup sports.

In March 2020, the City of Brampton received the Platinum Youth Friendly Community designation from Play Works, a program supported by Parks and Recreation Ontario.

The designation is awarded every three years to cities across Ontario that recognize the unique needs of youth ages 13 to 19 and ensure they have continuous access to leadership and engagement opportunities, ranging from arts to recreation to civic participation.

On Saturday (October 30), there will be a drop-in information session regarding these new hubs from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Susan Fennell Sportsplex.
