Love Your Block


Downtown Parry Sound

The Love Your Block initiative is a community improvement partnership between the Town of Parry Sound and Lakeland Power.  This is a one-time grant program that provides support to people that want to make positive changes in their neighbourhood with the support of Town departments, and advice from Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve.

With grant funds of up to $2,000, winning groups can purchase their supplies, engage their neighbours, and roll up their sleeves to transform their neighbourhood - block by block!

Love Your Block is an initiative that invites residents to submit project proposals that can:

  • Foster neighbourhood pride
  • Renew or revitalize neighbourhood public and green spaces
  • Build stronger neighbourhood relationships
  • Create a greater sense of belonging
  • Enhance playability and walkability
  • Improve safety, accessibility and/or mobility
  • Advance arts and culture in the community by connecting neighbourhoods with not-for-profit arts groups and individual artists practicing locally
  • Inspire residents to be more actively involved in the community

The Love Your Block program offers financial support to neighbourhood driven projects and events.  For more information on both the "Project" and "Event" grant streams, please click the links below:
