Improved Parks & Recreation Facilities : Ward Priorities

Parks & Recreation Facilities

Ensuring our parks are clean, green and vibrant is a priority of mine. I will be working with the community over the next four years  to ensure we are very good stewards of our parks, and that greenspaces support our active outdoor lifestyles. 

Parks are the jewels in our community; they are where we can escape from the daily grind of life in the city. Parks are not only are critical to our health and well-being, they contribute to a healthy environment, act as a hub for our community, and help increase property values. In the South Winnipeg–St. Norbert Ward, we are fortunate to have an abundance of parks, both formally maintained by City staff and passively maintained by Mother Nature.
