Skating trail in Brampton's Chinguacousy Park could be open for Winter 2015.
The guardian announces an outdoor ice skating trail to be built in Brampton's Chinguacousy Park near the new Ski Chalet by July 2015. The Skating trail project was integrated into the 2013 City of Brampton budget with estimated costs of $4.8 million. The new and improved skating trail will replace the skating rink at the Bramalea Civic Centre which was closed down in favour of 55 Parking Spaces. I used to skate at the Bramalea Civic Centre when I was a child and I have skated in family evenings at the Civic Centre and with Sparks and Brownie Groups. It will be great to have an outdoor rink open again on this side of Brampton as an alternative to Gage Park or the outdoor rink in the new Mount Pleasant Village. The new skating trail is expected to have seating areas, gathering space/plaza, pedestrian path, and a building to house equipment and washrooms. I hear it will have a snack bar too, for that perfect cup of hot Chocolate after the skate.
Until then you can still enjoy and outdoor free Skate at Gage Park and Mount Pleasant.
