City of Brampton Ontario’s first fully AODA-compliant park: Brampton’s Creditview Activity Hub

Located at the 100-acre Creditview Sandalwood Park
(10510 Creditview Park, Creditview Road and Sandalwood Parkway) 

Opened to the public in Spring 2018, the Creditview Activity Hub is a first-of-its-kind in Ontario and fully Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) compliant. It is fully accessible for individuals with physical, mental and emotional challenges and disabilities.  ​​​ The ​Activity Hub is themed with a water-cycle idea, colour-coordinated with educational signage, and includes a splash pad, bounce wall, four-square and hopscotch, swings, climbers, slides, sand tables, and a sway ship (wheelchair accessible).  

Park Features

  • Eight mini soccer fields, two cricket/soccer combo fields, one junior cricket field, two lit football/soccer combo fields, two lit lacrosse/soccer combo fields, four soccer fields (three lit), and two artificial turf (and lit) FIFA-approved soccer fields.
  • A fieldhouse with public change rooms/washrooms, first aid, concession areas, shaded seating, and a picnic shelter that can accommodate 40-50 people.
  • Parking for approximately 1,000 vehicles.
  • Various outdoor fitness equipment around the pathway.
  • A Community Garden where residents can grow vegetables (located near the fire station).
  • Approximately three kms of walking trails, which connect to the surrounding nature trails and Natural Heritage System/Valleys.

Did you know?

  • ​There are no underground drainage sewers in the park. All water drainage is handled by utilizing Low Impact Development (LID) technology and best practices. This helps the environmental footprint of the park, as all rainwater and drainage infiltrates naturally back into the ground, rather than being piped into the sewer system.
  • Water from the splash pad is captured in a “nature pond” which is recycled to irrigate the adjacent soccer fields. This reduces overall water consumption and provides an environment-friendly design to reuse any water. 
  • Approximately 2,500 trees and shrubs are planted throughout the park. More than 500 have been planted in partnership with the Credit Valley Conservation Authority to provide a naturalized environment, improve biodiversity, improve storm water quality, and prevent erosion. ​
