Half a million dollars in provincial funding is coming to southeast Winnipeg for various projects.

In an announcement at École Guyot (400 Willowlake Cres.) on Aug. 28, the government announced it will help fund a natural playground, 500 feet of walking and biking paths, a small hill, and stumps and log benches for an outdoor classroom at the school through its parent advisory council.

The installation of the natural playground is also intended to repair drainage issues and make the site more accessible. The money comes from the Manitoba Building and Renewal Plan, which committed $7.5 million over three years to projects in Winnipeg.
