PHOTOS: Here's What the Riverwalk Could Look Like in Brampton
It’s no secret that major changes are coming to Brampton - from a new university, to a new downtown streetscape, to an LRT system, and more, Canada’s ninth largest city is set to undergo some serious upgrades.
One of those upgrades is the Riverwalk project that’s set to revitalize the Etobicoke Creek in Brampton.
This project has been in the works for some years now. Currently, an environmental assessment is slated for 2018, prior to any construction.
Here’s a look at the study area:
The Riverwalk project sits at an estimated $200 million for a long-term solution to flood risk in Brampton. It'll run along the Etobicoke River floodplain, aiming to increase potential for urban development and, ultimately, make Brampton more healthy, sustainable and resilient, according to the City of Brampton.
The Etobicoke Creek was once at the heart of downtown Brampton, and the City is planning to reconfigure it where it once fit.
According to the City, this will create a vibrant new space with a distinct identity for Brampton.
