They braved cold and rain for Manitou Park Community Picnic, Oct 24, 2015.
Organized by local residents, City of Brampton supported with tents, signs, games and a BBQ. Members from BikeBrampton came out to educate on cycling skills, distribute route maps and join the fun!
Community Bike Centre displayed their recent successes with the 1st ever Pedalwise program that just wrapped up after a summer of mentoring cyclists to feel comfortable navigating the streets and pathways of Brampton. Bikewrx trains bike mechanic skills to fix up used bikes for the community.
Face-painting, a great favourite with kids and adults too!
David Suzuki Homegrown Rangers encourage local park plantings and looking after our precious environment!
Tree planting is one of the best ways to give back to the City, build our tree canopy and improve our health!
Steeped Tea — the best for colour and warmth on a wet chilly autumn day!
Defying the weather!
Thanks to Region of Peel Waste folks for demonstrating our new recycling, organics and waste bins!
Region of Peel Council recently voted to increase waste diversion target from 60% to 75%. We all have to do our part with donating reusable items, separating our recyclables and organics, to lower our contribution to landfill!
Thanks Michele at City of Brampton Recreation! Your support for Manitou Park Community Picnic and all over the community is so appreciated!
