Andrew McCandless heritage home- part of the new park

Great things are happening in Brampton! Construction has started on Andrew McCandless Park, a new park located along the Huttonville Creek, on the southeast corner of Mississauga Road and Bovaird Drive. The park is expected to be complete by summer 2017.

The park is part of a campus development that includes Jean Augustine Secondary School, and the Andrew McCandless farmhouse. The farmhouse is a heritage building that will be preserved with the intent of future restoration for adaptive reuse.

Park construction will focus on extensive naturalization, wetland creation and rehabilitation along the creek. The park will have two distinct areas: one for active recreation; and, a naturalized valley land for passive use.
