Brampton’s acclaimed self-guided tour “A Walk Through Time: Downtown Heritage Walking Tour” is now available as a free web app on all mobile devices. The tour book, originally released in 2009, is currently one of the City’s most popular publications.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve the visitor experience in Brampton with enhanced and inclusive services. The new app puts convenience at the fingertips of residents and visitors, helping them explore our downtown and discover its many heritage attractions,” said Councillor Whillans, Council representative on the Brampton Heritage Board.
The tour highlights the places, stories and people that influenced the early development of Brampton and continue to shape this vibrant city. This web app is a new way for residents and visitors to experience Brampton’s downtown and learn about its unique heritage along the way.
The web app works on all devices and across all platforms so you can tour downtown Brampton’s most important heritage sites using any internet-enabled smartphone, tablet or other mobile device, any time and at your own pace. It was built using data from the City of Brampton’s Open Data Catalogue and the Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS.
