Weigh in on the Draft Recreation & Parks Strategies

Weigh in on the Draft Recreation & Parks Strategies

A draft of the long-term plans for parks and recreation is now available for public comment.

Winnipeg’s Recreation & Park Strategies is 25-year framework that will guide programs, policies, and future investment in existing and new infrastructure for both recreation and parks. This long-term vision is important, as the City faces some difficult challenges in maintaining its aging infrastructure while making new investments to meet future needs.

Much of Winnipeg’s existing recreation and parks infrastructure is at or near the end of its useful lifecycle, and we need to find out where Winnipeggers want to see future investment. 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.

Residents can engage two ways: by participating in the recreation survey and parks survey until April 23, 2021 and at one of two online workshops:
