Community mapping involves creating a map of a community that is told from the perspective of those who live, work, or play in the area. What places spark a special memory? Where do you feel most welcome? Where do you go to be with community? Where do you go to find peace in nature? These are just some of the prompting questions provided to participants at the community mapping events held in Cecelia Ravine in September and October of 2022. The stories collected at the events are captured here to create a map of 'Burnside Gorge Neighbourhood Gems.'
Community members are invited to continue building this map by identifying neighbourhood assets, looking at opportunities, and helping to create a picture of what it is like to live in the neighbourhood. Consider significant people, places, programs and experiences in the Burnside Gorge (and the surrounding area) and mark them on the map. Help identify the neighbourhood's hot spots, hidden gems, and everything in between! Please include a photo with your entry, if possible.
