2008 Program and Results
The City of Kawartha Lakes received 5 Blooms, the highest rating possible, at the Communities in Bloom Awards Ceremony presented in Lethbridge, Alberta in September 2008. The truly exciting news is that we were named the winner of the prestigious Scott's Best Community of Gardeners Award.
This award is said by some of the judges to be more prestigious than the overall population category winner award as it is a competition amongst all of the municipalities who participate in Communities in Bloom. This totalled 83 communities and we were selected as the Best Community of Gardeners.
It is a reflection of the pride that is shown across the entire community, from private residential gardens, to commercial building gardens, to local volunteer groups such as Horticultural Association gardens to municipal gardens maintained by staff.
