Public Invited to Provide Input on City Wide Recreation & Parks Strategies
The City of Winnipeg is undergoing a City Wide review of recreation and parks infrastructure. I encourage you to fill out the survey and attend upcoming open houses.
PLEASE NOTE: South West Winnipeg residents, when you are filling out the survey and are asked where you travel to for recreation activities – please ensure you identify it is BECAUSE there currently are no recreation facilities in South West Winnipeg. (While we are making very good progress, the facility is not built yet.)
Winnipeg’s recreation and parks services and infrastructure contribute to the enjoyment and quality of life for residents and visitors. They improve our health and wellbeing, strengthen our communities, and make our city a more attractive place to live and work.
The Winnipeg Recreation and Parks Strategies will provide a 25-year framework to help guide recreation and parks programs, services, policies, standards and procedures, and future investment in existing and new infrastructure. The City of Winnipeg (the City) is facing some difficult challenges in maintaining its aging infrastructure and making new investments to meet future needs. As Winnipeg continues to grow and change, the need to make strategic, forward-thinking decisions to ensure the City can deliver high-quality recreation and parks services is essential.
The online survey will be accepting feedback from April 20, 2018 to June 30, 2018 and is available online at: www.winnipeg.ca/RecandParks.
It is the first of several upcoming opportunities that the public can expect over the next year to share their input with the project team. The City will also be hosting two public open houses for the Recreation and Parks Strategies in the coming months to introduce information gathered during this research and analysis phase and to gather input for consideration during the development of the Strategies.
