Background

The South Winnipeg Recreation Campus (SWRC) is a new regional recreation facility that will be built on Bison Drive west of Frontier Trail and east of Kenaston Boulevard (map). Communities in southwest Winnipeg are growing and a new recreation facility is needed to meet their needs. The facility is intended to serve a catchment area of 4-6 km that will be home to more than 120,000 residents.

The project will be built in multiple phases, with design work for Phase 1 starting in fall 2022 and construction expected in 2024-2025. Phase 1 includes gymnasiums, multipurpose rooms, indoor walking track and fitness area, a daycare, and an outdoor spray pad.

A master site plan will be created for future phases. Future phases may include an aquatic centre, library, outdoor leisure space, arena, and athletic fields. The City is also constructing a fire-paramedic station on the site.

The SWRC is funded by the Government of Canada, the Province of Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg.

Future phases are subject to funding and Council approval.
