Keeping Pembroke Beautiful
June 21st, 2015 Proclaimed Garden Day

The City of Pembroke participated actively in Communities In Bloom between 1998 and 2014. It is  an international beautification and environmental awareness program that provides information and education in order to instill civic pride and community appreciation of our surroundings. The program uses a holistic approach to community development that stresses community involvement. Having won the International competition in 2013, Keeping Pembroke Beautiful now encourages the municipal government, residents, businesses, institutions and community organizations  to sustain the successes that have been acheived.
