Come together Kirkendall

Kirkendall Neighbourhood Strategy

For the past year, the City of Hamilton has been asking the people living and working in Kirkendall what they think are the most critical issues facing their neighbourhood.
It’s time to come together and review what everyone’s been talking about and what to do next.

A strong sense of community is essential to our wellbeing, our feelings of safety and security, and it can impact how we participate in civic events.

How can we deepen the sense of community in Kirkendall and make better connections with our neighbours?
How do we make sure there is a place for everyone in a changing Kirkendall, and how can we impact what that change might look like?
What role do our parks, local shops, schools, our library, streets and community centre play in creating a sense of community?

Five main issues have risen to date. Let’s take a deeper dive, make sure we haven’t missed anything and discuss next steps starting with our HAAA.

Guest Jay Pitter will join us. Jay will be there to facilitate our neighbourhood discussion. Jay is an author, internationally recognized placemaker and inclusive city builder.

We have two sessions to choose from because we know Saturdays are busy.

Limited childcare spaces are available. Please register in advance.

There are two sessions: 10am-1pm / 2pm-5pm

7th Annual Movie Night Under the Stars

Thursday August 15th (rain date August 22nd). This free event is open to all residents. Each year the KNA chooses a nostalgic title, providing an opportunity for residents to see an older title on the big screen again, and a chance for younger residents to see an older title on the big screen for the first time.

The event is held outdoors, on the property of Blessings Christian Church. The movie starts at dusk and the event runs until approximately 11pm.
