Recognize a garden

The Kitchener in Bloom program celebrates the gardening efforts of residents and business owners who help to make our city a more beautiful place to live. 

Between now and September, we invite you to recognize all types of gardens that make Kitchener greener, more vibrant and more sustainable.

Thank a neighbour for making the most of their outdoor space and helping to grow community pride by filling out our online form.

Garden finder map

Check out our garden finder map for gardening inspiration or to find greenspaces in your neighbourhood to add to your next walk or bike ride.

Add your own garden to our map if you were recognized by Kitchener in Bloom or if you want to share your garden on our map. You can also add a public garden or other greenspace you want people to see! Include a picture and description to make the map even better.

Add a garden to the map

Adding a garden to our garden finder map is not a Kitchener in Bloom recognition. Find recognition information above.
