Placemaking Week Logo

Saturday, June 10th - Sunday, June 18th 

What's Happening!

Placemaking Week focuses on making the spaces we live into places we love. It seeks to create a thriving, equitable, and sustainable world through the convergence of values, passion, and action around our public spaces.

The Town of New Tecumseth is posed for significant growth over the next several years and creating thriving, resilient communities will be important! Placemaking can help us engage with our fellow community members to develop meaningful relationships and see our public spaces in new and exciting ways.

A list of events and activities have been organized with the purpose of engaging our community in new and fun ways, while providing our residents with new perspectives. We hope to see you there!
