City of Kimberley Releases RFP for Operation of Cominco Gardens


The City of Kimberley has released a Request for Proposals from qualified individuals, companies or non-profit societies for landscape services at Kimberley’s Cominco Gardens.

Cominco Gardens is set on 5-acres with over 45,000 colourful flowers in bloom yearly. Surrounded by a canopy of mature trees, the site is often used for weddings and photo sessions and is of historical significance to Kimberley, boasting many visitors each year.

The RFP closes at 2:00 pm on April 7, 2022. Respondents are invited to view the RFP online at or below. Written questions are welcome until March 31, 2022.

The City thanks the Kimberley Community Development Society (KCDS) for their remarkable management of the facility for many years along with a dedicated team of gardeners and volunteers. With the winding down of KCDS, Council and staff must seek alternate options for operation of the City-owned facility but are grateful for the many years of service from the Society.
