Communities in Bloom

People, Plants and Pride - Growing Together

Communities in Bloom is much more than flowers. It is a Canadian, a non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community participation and the challenge of a national program.

The County of Grande Prairie has participated in Communities in Bloom since 2003.

Judging is conducted under the following eight categories:

  • Tidiness
  • Environmental awareness
  • Community involvement
  • Natural and Cultural Heritage Conservation
  • Tree/Urban Forestry Management
  • Landscaped areas
  • Floral display
  • Turf & groundcovers

Visit the Communities in Bloom official website at for detailed information, and to see a list of winners from past years.

Communities in Bloom needs community involvement and participation to make it a success. The County is proud of gardeners and volunteer organizers who make this event happen. If you would like to be involved in your community, please contact Nora-Lee Gilkyson at 780-532-9727.
