The Bowness community association hosts a number of special events each year, most notably the annual Bowness Stampede Stomp, which includes a parade and Stampede Breakfast.
Bowness has recently undergone a number of changes. Their new area redevelopment plan (ARP) has led to new flags, cobblestone walks, landscaping and hanging flowers. This sprucing up has attracted a number of new businesses to the area, and the community association is actively involved in continuing this redevelopment, while ensuring that the community retains its distinct flavour.
