Participate in this community initiative to help beautify our town!
  • Sweep the sidewalk, gutter and parking lane;

  • Tidy-up back alleys.
Every little bit helps!
The street sweeper will run downtown (between Hazel Avenue and Pyramid Lake Road) once a week to collect the dust from the clean up effort.

People, Plants and Pride... Growing Together

Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization promoting civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community participation and the challenge of a friendly competition.

Behind the scenes of our world-renowned vacation destination, a dedicated group of residents and volunteers work together to support the objectives and values of the Communities in Bloom program, promoting involvement and action by citizens of all ages, municipal government, local organizations and businesses.

The program strives to improve the tidiness, appearance and visual appeal of neighbourhoods, parks, open spaces and streets through the imaginative use of flowers, plants and trees. A focus on environmental awareness and preservation of heritage and culture is also embedded in the program, resulting in improved quality of life for participating communities.
