The Facility

Built in 1867, The Alderlea was painstakingly restored and expanded by the City of Brampton, merging historical charm with innovative green design features. One of Ontario’s finest examples of Italianate architecture, visitors to The Alderlea are enchanted by the generous eaves, large turned brackets, bay windows, wrap-around verandah, and other charming original details. The venue boasts stunning marble fireplaces, intricately detailed plasterwork, and elegant furnishings.

The Grounds

Picturesque gardens surround The Alderlea, beautifully landscaped with seasonal plantings. A perfect setting for photographs, an outdoor ceremony space is also available, with space for up to 120 guests. Parking is available for 24 cars, with additional paid parking lots located close by. The Alderlea overlooks Gage Park, which was originally the estate’s expansive front lawn. Now a popular public park, it can be rented separately, if desired.
