Brampton’s Downtown revitalization
Downtown Brampton lies within the Etobicoke Creek floodplain. Provincial policies around hazard management restrict the type and amount of development that can occur there today.
Riverwalk is a top priority for the City of Brampton and will be a transformative opportunity to help revitalize Brampton’s downtown and make it healthy, sustainable and resilient.
It starts with engineering an innovative long-term solution to the flood risk, which will unlock the potential for urban growth and development. In turn, it will put the creek back at the heart of downtown, creating a vibrant new space that provides a distinct identity for the city.
The Riverwalk project is part of, and contributes to, a greater planning vision for the City of Brampton.
