Traffic Island Beautification

The Hamilton in Bloom sponsorship program turns traffic islands into beautiful flower beds. The program offers a great opportunity to reach your target market in an innovative way.

Your sponsorship will be recognized in several ways, including the installation of a sign visible to motorists and pedestrians who travel by the flower beds every day. The response from residents and visitors to this innovative sponsorship program has been overwhelmingly positive. 

Benefits of Sponsorship

Benefits of the Hamilton in Bloom sponsorship program:

  • Reach your target audience in an innovative way
  • The Hamilton In Bloom program improves our air quality by reducing airborne dust and pollution.
  • Great visibility to motorists and pedestrians.
  • Vibrant colours and lush greenery in the traffic islands provide both residents and tourists with a sense of peace, pleasure and civic pride. 

For over 15 years, private citizens, businesses, organizations and service clubs have contributed funds to beautify and maintain flower islands. We can customize a partnership and marketing program for your business. We can promote your organization at events such as the Hamilton Fall Garden and Mum Show.
