City of Leduc earns award in Communities in Bloom

Leduc was awarded a 2015 Communities in Bloom national Five Silver Blooms for multiway trail system.

Recently the City of Leduc was awarded a 2015 Communities in Bloom national Five Silver Blooms award for what has been dubbed by judges as a one-of-a-kind multiway trail system.

Within the national competition, Leduc was judged in the Class of Champions and joined other cities from across Canada, including Charlottetown, P.E.I., Westmount, Que., and the Rural Municipality of Wood Buffalo, AB.

Over the summer a group of judges travelled to communities across the county evaluating those involved on a series of factors, including; the overall contributions of municipal council and departments, industry, businesses, the private sector and volunteer efforts regarding tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape and floral displays.

A press released issued by the City of Leduc states, “Following their evaluation, volunteer judges Gaétan Deschênes and Steve Preston wrote: ‘Leduc is blessed with a comprehensive multiway trail system that is like no other. Anyone can go anywhere within the City, whether shopping, to its numerous recreation facilities, biking, jogging or for a stroll through its beautiful parks’.”

In a separate release, mayor Greg Krischke states, “Leduc is honoured to receive this prestigious national rating from Communities in Bloom. To have our community recognized nationally for the Multiway and the Walk of Generations is truly an achievement.”
