In February 2009, Crescentwood Community Centre, River Heights Community Centre, and Sir John
Franklin Community Centre formed the Corydon Corridor Community Centre Committee in response to
the City of Winnipeg’s Plan 2025 in order to enhance the working partnership that already exists
between the three community centres. The committee has been working to define a new model of
operation for Sir John Franklin, River Heights, and Crescentwood, with the potential to
redevelop/reconfigure facilities on existing or expanded centre footprints that enhance centre
sustainability to better meet community needs, and to share governance and programming.
The formation of the Committee is in response to the City of Winnipeg’s Plan 2025 and recognizes that
despite three separate catchments, the three centres really serve one community. The best way to
ensure that service provided by the centres is meeting the needs for the benefit of that community is to
build on the strengths of each centre and overcome the limitations of each individual facility. It
recognizes that it is not feasible to think that every facility can be “everything”, especially with three
community centres in such close proximity. It is also in recognition of a need to maximize the benefit of
the availability of funding and of the local volunteer force.
