Do you know some of Brampton’s pleasant neighbourhoods? As the name suggests, Mount Pleasant is a place you’d surely want to check out. This special spot in the northwest portion of Brampton had been mainly an agricultural land since the 1900s but experienced suburban growth since the opening of the GO Station in 2006 and the launching of the Mount Pleasant Village in the same year. The MPV is the first new urbanism neighbourhood in Brampton, a community-designed neighbourhood notable for its walkable amenities.
Perhaps the favourite gem in the neighbourhood is the public square that has a park for city events, a library, community center, and the GO station just 100 metres away. Fun activities are held here all throughout the year especially the outdoor skating rink in the wintertime. If you’re an art enthusiast, you’d also love the unique stainless-steel sculptures designed by renowned artist Ron Baird. These public art sculptures will take you to the railroad history of Mount Pleasant.
Other recreation spots are the Buick Park And Skatepark along Buick Blvd and the Mount Pleasant Recreational Trail which also has splash pads, food trucks and kite flying activity. The East Huttonville Creek flows alongside this beautiful trail. The Old Pro Driving Range located on the intersection of Bovaird Dr W and Mississauga Rd offers short golf games for a good price. While Brampton Golf Range has their own club rentals and well-maintained facilities.

The Brampton Library has many interesting programs for small children and immigrants, and is also connected to the MPV Public School, a 2-storey elementary school that accepts grades K-8. There are also many school options evenly spread out around the neighbourhood which includes both public and private schools as well as Catholic schools.
To name a few of these schools are James Potter Public School, Worthington Public School, Mount Pleasant Montessori, St. Roch Catholic S.S., and Jean Augustine Secondary School.
Shopping and Food
Strategically placed around the town square are 2-storey commercial buildings that provide a great streetscape experience. You don’t need to go far to get your necessities and other transactions. Some of businesses that can be found here are restaurants, courier service, salons and spas, convenience store and other professional and medical service providers. At the intersection of Mississauga Rd and Bovaird Dr W is the The Apple Factory Farm Market where you can get a variety of locally-grown produce, baked goods and of course, fresh-baked pies!
You can also get a taste of multi-cultural flavours when you visit Biryani Culture on Sidford Rd for authentic Chicken Biryani experience, Lily Thai Cuisine on Ashby Field Rd for their mango salad and spicy seafood, and Giggling Tomatoes on Pertosa Dr for classic Canadian sandwiches and pasta.
Residential homes and Transportation
MPV has a mix of detached homes, townhomes and condo buildings. As a new urbanism neighbourhood, special attention to heritage can be seen in the architectural styles of these homes. The sidewalks are pedestrian-friendly and the curving streets are driver-friendly. The GO Train Station provide the residents with rail and bus transit service, along with a charming landmark clock tower. Just 5 minutes away from the station is the Daniels MPV condos, an upcoming master-planned community located on east of Creditview Road.
Mount Pleasant surely has a lot to offer! And exciting new developments are still underway for this charming and historical neighbourhood. Worthy of its name, Mount Pleasant provides happy satisfaction to residents and tourists alike.
