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.
