Vivian Lane cycling murals

Don’t leave downtown Brampton without poking your head (and bike) down Vivian Lane, just off the north end of Garden Square. You are in for a visual treat with Norbert Augustine’s bike murals displaying iconic settings of City of Brampton – Historic Bovaird House, Historic Alderlea, Gage Park Gazebo and City Hall.
