Recreation & Parks Strategies
Winnipeg's recreation and parks services and infrastructure contribute to the enjoyment and quality of life for residents and visitors. They improve our health and wellbeing, strengthen our communities, protect nature, and make our city a more attractive place to live and work.
The City is facing some difficult challenges in maintaining aging infrastructure and making new investments to meet future needs. As Winnipeg continues to grow and change, the need to make strategic, forward-thinking decisions to ensure we can deliver high-quality recreation and parks services is essential.
The Council-approved Winnipeg Recreation & Parks Strategies provide long-term frameworks and policy statements to guide recreation and parks programs, services, standards and procedures, and future investment in existing and new infrastructure.
Implementation on the recommendations within each strategy will begin shortly, and the City will report back to Council on their progress every two years beginning in 2024.
