Winnipeg In Bloom

<- 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 ->

NAR: Increasingly recognition is being given to private gardens. And to beautifully landscaped commercial properties by a group called Take Pride Winnipeg.

COLLEEN KURLOWICH:
TAKE PRIDE WINNIPEG
Take Pride Winnipeg is an organization dedicated to keep Winnipeg clean and beautiful.

One of our most popular programs is our Winnipeg in Bloom Contest.

We had 485 people participate: businesses, residential, community efforts like churches and parks as well. Some of our contestants are so enthusiastic they call us in January for their entry forms and we don't have them printed yet. When people find out they have won they are very excited. They take a lot of pride in their gardening; so to be recognized is a real source of pride for them.

A beautiful city helps to instil a sense of civic pride and also is great for tourism. We have a lot of people who ask for a list of entries so they can visit on tours. We have a lot of commercial projects that enter each year and they are beautiful. Waterfront Drive in Winnipeg is just beautiful, they have done an excellent job landscaping very new street, really breathtaking. When people are working downtown it's a great way to step away from your office and stop and smell the roses.

There is also a national contest that Winnipeg is a part of called Communities in Bloom and Winnipeg captured that contest in 2001.

JACK LUBINSKI:
CITY OF WINNIPEG PARK SERVICES
It's very important for a city to have beautiful parks it affects the quality of life. A great example of this is at Vimy Ridge Park and secondly at Kildonan Park. And our boulevards are just teeming with colours and beautiful displays of annuals throughout the city. We have over 1400 plants and beds throughout Winnipeg.

There is a national communities in bloom program and Winnipeg has won twice since 1995. It made everyone involved in the CIB so proud.

It has been harder to maintain public open landscapes in recent years.

JAN PEDERSON:
GARDEN CENTER OWNER
The level of interest that should exist in public planting doesn't exist and hasn't existed for a very long time. That passion has been replaced by a careful look at the bottom line.

There is I believe a lot of pressure on municipalities not to overspend and unfortunately the public gardens public parks and public places have really taken that hit. It's unfortunate but that's the way it is.
