The next phase of investments into our neighbourhood parks has started.
Since being elected, I have focused on upgrading neighbourhood parks so all play structures are safe and meet the needs of the neighbourhood.
With this year’s replacement of Biscayne Bay’s play structure, we have renewed or updated 13 play structures in the ward.
We are now are in the position to begin the next phase of investments into neighbourhood parks.
Have some ideas on how your neighbourhood park can be improved? Let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 204-986-5236.
Some upcoming neighbourhood parks projects include:
• Planning for future upgrades to the Corydon Community Centre’s River Heights Site playground.
• The city is bidding on the Winnipeg School Division’s offer to purchase the Sir John Franklin School site so the green space can be retained for neighbourhood use.
• Muys Park walking path improvements around the retention ponds and replacement of fountains.
•Working with the École Van Walleghem School Parent Advisory Council to enhance shared green space including adding trees, an outdoor classroom, improved drainage and repairs to trails.
You can also get information on the numerous other enhancements planned for many neighbourhood parks this year at www.orlikow.ca
