BRAMPTON, ONT. — A new multi-purpose cricket facility is being proposed for Brampton, Ont.
The city is launching an Expression of Interest (EOI) for interested parties to submit comprehensive plans to develop the lands into a vibrant urban realm and walkable neighbourhood that includes a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose cricket facility.
Cricket is a popular sport in Brampton and continues to grow.
The 112-acre site owned by the City of Brampton was identified in the 2040 Vision with potential to advance the area as a regional destination.
Currently, the area is the location of the CAA sports and entertainment facility. It was formerly the Powerade Centre. The existing cricket field was redeveloped in 2021 to expand it to international standards, including natural turf wickets, adjusting the field layout to provide better sun orientation, improved grading and spectator access.
A 2019 technical analysis identified the strategic opportunity to transform the large, developable precinct from a sports complex into a new urban core with major transit-oriented opportunities for high-density residential, business, leisure and tourism, adds the website.
The EOI is expected to be evaluated in Q2 and a report back to council is expected in Q3.
