Chinguacousy Park: Family outing for weekends of September 8 and 15

This week, I went to check out what millions of dollars injected into a municipal park can do. Turns out... a lot!!! Weather permitting, it will be open until mid-September.

Chinguacousy Park in Brampton used to have a little water section with a fee. It now offers a grandiose top of the line splash pad and it's free. Check out the photos. The whole park has changed A LOT!

We also did a paddle boat ride (approx. $5 for two-seater fro 30 minutes, plenty of time to enjoy the two ponds). And one of us (not me!) brought a skateboard to try the new skate park, another fab addition to this great park, also free. You can also see some animals and take a $3 ride on a small motorized train.

To get there, from Hwy 401, take Hwy 410 north, exit at Queen Street East in Brampton and turn left at Bramalea Road.
