Pedestrian Bridge, Omand Park, Winter

We’ve got a problem and we want to figure it out together.

The bridge in Omand Park is old and must be replaced.

Putting a new bridge in the old spot isn’t ideal because:

  • The bridge floods nearly every year.
  • The low-lying location is not accessible – it is dangerous to reach for people using wheelchairs or vulnerable users on bikes or other wheels.

We’ll soon explore how a new pedestrian bridge could serve the community while maintaining the look and feel of the park.

Before we do that, we want to talk to you. Your feedback will help us better understand the community, your needs, and how you currently use the park.

Take part however works best for you:

    We want to hear from you! Pre-design engagement has begun.

    Before we begin the design study, we want your feedback to better understand:

    • Key areas of park use and value
    • Potential opportunities to improve pathways around the bridge
    • What the community wants to see in a potential future bridge
    • A vision for a future river access point
    • Whether feedback from the 2010 design and public engagement was properly interpreted and/or is still relevant

    By learning what is most important to the community and what various locations within the park are used for, we can better study and design some options for consideration.

    We are inviting Winnipeggers to provide their input through:

    Join us at a park event:

    Date: Thursday, May 30, 2024*
    Time: 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
    Location: Omand Park, meeting at the corner of Wolseley Avenue and Raglan Road
    Format: Drop-in (come and go)
    *In case of rain or high winds, visit the project website for rescheduling updates

    The online survey and mapping tool are available until June 10, 2024.

    We will start public engagement later this spring to talk about the existing park and a new bridge. We know many community members will remember a similar conversation from 2010. They may also remember the project was stopped based on community feedback. This time around, we’ll use what we heard in 2010 but will also make a bit of a fresh start. We now know how important the park and preserving its character is to the community. That’s why we will ask for your input first, before we get started on the design.

    Sign up for project updates and we will notify you when engagement begins.
