Can you guess which parks are the largest in Brampton?
Brampton’s parks have a lot to offer – from volleyball courts, to soccer fields, to beaches, to playgrounds, they boast a lot of fun for any summer day!
That being said, some of Brampton’s parks have a little more to offer, especially when it comes to space. If you’re looking for a giant park to enjoy right in the middle of our city, Brampton has some massive parks that feature a lot of fun things to do.
Here are the top five largest parks in Brampton.
5) White Spruce Park (10302 Heart Lake Road)
South of Heart Lake Conservation Area sits White Spruce Park, a scenic 54-acre park great for dogs, sports, and taking a leisurely walk. White Spruce has baseball diamonds, tennis courts, one of the only leash-free dog spaces in the city, and even a disc-golf course. Further, White Spruce has some incredible trails, perfect for an evening stroll or a mini daytime hike.
4) Professor’s Lake Park (Jameson Crescent and North Park Drive)
Stepping up the game considerably in size, Professor’s Lake Park is the next largest in the city, claiming 94 acres of land. Professor’s Lake is definitely the most summery of the largest parks in Brampton, with a swimming area, fishing, a water slide, beach volleyball courts, pathways, playgrounds, and non-motorized boat rentals – paddle boating on Professor’s Lake is ideal for the summer!
3) Sesquicentennial Park (11333 Bramalea Road)
Sesquicentennial might be a mouthful, but this massive 96-acre park is dedicated to sports. The park is actually considered a sports park, with eight fenced baseball diamonds. Usually used for leagues and tournaments, Sesquicentennial is a good place to both catch and play some baseball this summer.
2) Dixie/407 Park (7599 Dixie Road)
Another sports park, Dixie/407 Park competes for the largest park on this list, at just over 100 acres. The park has soccer fields and a cricket pitch, and, like Sesquicentennial, it’s a good spot to both catch and play a game! Dixie/407 is often used for pre-game training for large events, such as the Pan Am and Parapan Am pre-games.
1) Chinguacousy Park (9050 Bramalea Road)
At just over 100 acres, Chinguacousy Park is the largest in Brampton and has the widest variety of uses for its space. Chinguacousy is known as Brampton’s destination park, with tremendous sport facilities and leisure opportunities. That includes tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, mini-putt, a greenhouse and gardens, paddle boasts, a petting zoo, a splash pad, a playground, and a BMX/skateboard park. Further, the park has movies under the stars every Friday night until September 1.
