The Town of Conception Bay South received a Four Bloom rating and a special mention for The Manuels River Experience in the 2012 National Edition of Communities in Bloom.

The town was a finalist in the 20,001 to 50,000 population category. The national awards ceremonies took place in Edmonton, Alta. Oct. 12 and 13.

Following their evaluation, volunteer judges Evelyn Alemanni and Jim Baird wrote, “The Manuels River Experience started with nature trails, then international scientific research of the rich fossil resource and now an $8-million dollar interpretation centre is under construction with opening scheduled for spring 2013. This was all undertaken with local volunteer groups working together and securing the necessary corporate and government funding. The educational components are being designed in from the start. This will be a major tourist attraction for the town and the province. ”

Communities in Bloom is a national organization dedicated to the promotion of green spaces in community settings.

    Community Development Officer, you missed the point. The location will cause one huge traffic problem. Need I say it a third time? Got nothing to do with what goes on inside.

    A great idea but I guess a little beyond my scope of understanding how the town can approve community initiatives of this magnitude but cannot extend its power to grant municipal services to its humble citizens AMAZING!!

    ...It's already been pointed out in CBS's Shoreline News that Educational Center is located in spot at the Manuels Bridge that will guarantee traffic conjestion like you won't see anywhere else on the Avalon Peninsula. Dumb, dumber and dumbest all in one. But hey, Woodrow will take anything that guarantees a picture with a scissors in his hands and a ribbon to cut.
