At the heart of the Peel Region, Brampton, Ontario, lies within Greater Toronto Area’s Greenbelt. This positions Brampton among some outstanding natural vistas, including; the Niagara Escarpment, the Oak Ridges Moraine, and Rouge Park. There are several Conservation areas for leisure activities and appreciating Mother Nature’s fine work – the Claireville Conservation Area and the Heart Lake Conservation Area for example. The agricultural element includes award winning greenhouses full of flowers, as Brampton was once known as Flowertown. Local parks and gardens reflect this floral celebration - enjoy visiting the Chinguacousy Park Greenhouse and Gardens, or the Humber Nurseries Butterfly Conservatory to appreciate these incredible garden dwellers.
