Name the new Parkette / Garden CONTEST
The Campbellville Community Association, in partnership with the Town of Milton and Halton Region, have been working for a few years now to convert the corner of Guelph Line (Main Street) and Reid Sideroad from an abandoned lot to a parkette/garden.
The on-site work is finally progressing, with the hope that much will be done this fall, and we can do more next year.
However, we need a name for this new parkette/garden!
We were calling it the “Blue House corner” for a while, then the “Centennial Garden” (in honour of Campbellville’s 100th Birthday), then simply the “Community Garden”. However, people are finding this confusing because in many other places, a “community garden” is where residents can go to plant vegetables, and this is not how this parkette/garden/resting area will be used upon completion.
The project, which is the culmination of the principal groups named above, plus generous donations from commercial businesses and local residents, will have a Welcome to Campbellville entry sign, a pathway with local informational plaques, perennial gardens, trees, a resting area with benches and night lighting, flagpoles and the iconic mare and foal metal work statue generously donated by Sovereign Fusion and Moffatt Scrap Metal.
We need YOUR help in choosing a new name.
Please send your suggestions to Ruth at Membership@Campbellville.net. The DCCA Board of Directors will then narrow the list to the best 3-5 suggestions, and have a community vote. The winner will receive 2 free tickets to the 2015 DCCA Dance. Contest closes November 21.
Home to one of the smallest Conservation Areas in Canada
The quaint hamlet of Campbellville is one of the best places to live in Ontario. Set amongst the beauty of the Niagara Escarpment and surrounded by all the best nature has to offer, yet minutes to the 401 and major city centres. A rustic setting provides a backdrop for spas, shops, restaurants, antique stores and a down home country feeling Campbellville has become known for.
