South Winnipeg Recreation Campus : Ward Priorities
South Winnipeg Recreation Campus
I am working with community partners and levels of government to develop a recreational campus in South Winnipeg, located off Kenaston Boulevard and Bison Road South. Winnipeg is experiencing rapid growth and there is tremendous pressure on existing and old recreational facilities to keep up with this growth. In Waverley West alone, if the City were to adhere to the policy set out in the General Council of Winnipeg Community Centre 2025 Plan, 3.5 brand new community centres should be built in the Bridgwater Communities and South Pointe area. For whatever reason, land was not set aside in these communities for smaller recreation centres. In 2013, the City commissioned a study to work with community stakeholders to determine if there was an interest in developing a ‘super centre or recreation complex’ and if so, where it would be located.
I encourage you to read the results of the study, the BRAID REPORT – South Winnipeg Recreation Initiative and follow my blogs to keep updated on the development of recreation facilities in South Winnipeg.
