Chinguacousy Park Picnic Shelters

As part of the next wave of the City of Brampton’s investment into municipal recreational facilities, CS&P was asked to design three park shelters to accommodate picnics, barbeques, and gatherings of all sizes in a variety of different weather conditions throughout the year. It was important that the structures fit naturally within the surrounding residential context of Chinguacousy Park. The cross-laminated wood roof deck provides a flat, simple element which floats above the horizon of the park, and the material selection of zinc fascia, cedar screens and architectural concrete relates to the park’s main buildings.
