  • Print

The municipal and provincial governments teamed up to announce improvements to Clara Hughes Recreation Park.

On June 6, Local Government Minister Ron Lemieux and Mayor Sam Katz announced $100,000 from each level of government for the $250,000 project. The remainder of the money will be garnered through grants and community contributions.

The funding will create a multi-purpose room and canteen at the site by converting two of the four existing change rooms. As well, new washrooms and the front entry will be made wheelchair-accessible.

"It’s important for our community spaces to adapt and meet the changing needs of the people who visit," said Lemieux in a release.  "These renovations will enhance the park and make it an even more enjoyable destination for active families and community groups."

Later on June 6, the city announced $50,000 in funding through the Community Centre Renovation Grant program. Other northeast Winnipeg centres with projects approved during the program’s spring intake were: Oxford Heights Community Centre, which received $48,954 for mechanical system replacement, and Park City West Community Centre, which received $27,620 for lighting upgrades. In all, 13 centres received grants totaling $392,645.
