Grant Park Campus Open House
April 6, 2017 @ 16:00 - 20:00
The City of Winnipeg is seeking community input on improving recreation and leisure options on land located west of Grant Park Shopping Centre as part of a planning process.
The current site of the Grant Park Campus, 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 will 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.
Public input gathered as part of this process will lead to a detailed Grant Park Community Campus Plan that will guide short-term and long-term renewal of the area in a way that supports the needs and aspirations of families, residents, students, and seniors.
Bike Winnipeg would like to ensure that the redeveloped campus provides access for people on foot and bike, and if possible improves connectivity for people biking in the neighbourhood. We also think that there may be potential for a future AT tunnel beneath the CN mainline that would connect Nathaniel Steet to Parker Station and the SWRTC AT pathway, and that connections to this tunnel should be considered during this study. You can view a map of the tunnel being proposed (separate from this project) by Bike Winnipeg here.
