The Auditorium Neighbourhood received two awards at Sunday’s FESTIVAL OF NEIGHBOURHOODS Finale at City Hall.

Our Knollwood Park Rejuvenation and Fundraising Campaing reveived the INCLUSION AWARD 2013, sponsored by the Independent Living Centre of Waterloo Region. This award wanted to recognize our efforts with establishing the trail, the pavilion and the berm to make the park more accesible, safe and attractive to diverse groups, for example in ability, age, culture, economic level and identity.

Waddlefest received the SAFER NEIGHBOURHOOD AWARD; sponsored by Swanson’s Home hardware Building Centre for creating an event with the purpose of building a stronger, safer neighbourhood by encouraging community engagement and participation.
