We are excited to announce the launch of the Knottwood Bench Project.
In efforts to make our neighbourhood more walkable, we have purchased community benches that have been placed in various locations around Knottwood. Knottwood residents are adopting the benches, painting them however they like) and placing them in front of their homes for people to use.
These benches will help to:
- make Knottwood a more friendly place where people can sit, enjoy the views, meet new people or take a break
- promote a sense of pride in our community by adding unique benches for all to enjoy
- make Knottwood more walkable, encourage community building and help reduce social isolation and loneliness
- encourage your neighbours to get outside and be more active
- positively contribute to the safety of Knottwood as people who invest in their community watch out for one another
Our hope with this program is to engage as many people as possible in our neighbourhood and share ideas about other ways we can evolve and improve our wonderful neighbourhood through continued community revitalizations.

For those of you who may be interested, Holyrood community has put 20 benches in their community. It is worth a drive to see how great they look.
