The City of Winnipeg has completed a study on improving recreation and leisure options on land located west of Grant Park Shopping Centre.
The current site, bounded by Grant Avenue to the north and Taylor Avenue to the south, is home to several well-used facilities including the Pan Am Pool, the Charles A. Barbour Indoor Arena, and outdoor soccer fields.
Public input was used to help the City determine how best to upgrade and rejuvenate the site with the overall goal of creating a connected, vibrant community campus offering year-round active living and leisure options for all ages.
A modernized indoor arena, open green spaces, community gardens and a new public library are among the amenities the City is exploring.
Thank you to the many citizens, community groups, recreation leaders, library associations, health and social agencies, school administration, and local businesses who contributed through interviews, workshops, our community open house and the online survey. Your participation and feedback has been invaluable in shaping this plan.
