The City of Winnipeg (City) is updating the 2018 Feasibility Study for the proposed East of the Red RecPlex, an approximately 92,000 square foot multi-use recreation centre. The proposed East of the Red RecPlex will be a “one-stop shop” multi-use centre where families and individuals can spend time pursuing different activities in the same location. The proposed recreation centre is planned for the north-west corner of Transcona Boulevard and Plessis Road, next to the Transcona Library.

Background

On October 17, 2017 the East Kildonan-Transcona Community Committee passed a motion to approve funds to commission a feasibility study to investigate building a new recreation complex adjacent to the new Transcona Library. The City subsequently prepared a Feasibility Study for the East of the Red RecPlex site in Transcona in 2018, which included a business plan and financial model.

The City is now preparing to update the 2018 Feasibility Study.

The goals of the update are to:

  • Revise the project design and cost estimates
  • Explore funding options for the new recreation facility, including the potential to sell adjacent land for a housing development and funding from other levels of government
  • Gather feedback from the community on the need, design and potential amenities for the new recreation facility
Construction is subject to Council approval and funding.
