The new facilities are all linked by a new landscaping and pedestrian pathway system.CONTEXTChinguacousy Park is a civic landmark in Brampton, Ontario, a local and regional destination, with numerous park activities throughout. The new facilities are a core group of structures within the larger park system, designed to modernize the park, develop a consistency in the park architecture, and link the program areas.

APPROACH
The redevelopment goal is to create a welcoming community hub capable of sustaining year-long recreational activity, and to transform the park into a beautiful sequence of indoor and outdoor spaces.

The new facilities have been designed using a consistent vocabulary of forms and palette of materials. Each building has a series of terraces and shaded deck areas overlooking the park activities, reinforcing the indoor-outdoor intentions of the complex. The Chalet and Tennis / Curling facilities have revitalized the core commercial aspects of the park and added to the interior program areas, as well as adding park features to be served by these buildings.
