The Burnside Gorge Graffiti Fighters are a small (but growing) team of neighbours working to make Burnside Gorge a better place by removing graffiti from our neighbourhood. We’re looking for new recruits! We believe if each person or couple of people adopt a street or block, we could maintain the neighbourhood free of graffiti.

You may have seen graffiti on the power poles and utility boxes in Burnside Gorge. Rather than looking away, some volunteers have picked up kits from the Burnside Gorge Community Centre to clean up and paint over the unsightly marks in our public areas. There has been a remarkable change on the streets in just a short while. One of the positives is that the people doing the graffiti removal are having fun while making the streets look better!

If you would like to become a part of the solution, contact our group and we’ll provide you with the kit, a partner to show you what to do, and the information to get your block graffiti free. Reach us at
