    On May 26, 2022, Council approved the Winnipeg Recreation & Parks Strategies, long-term strategic plans designed to guide investment in and decisions on recreation and parks services and operations. Thank you to the community groups, stakeholders, partners, and the general public for their input that helped shape the Strategies.

    As the strategies are implemented over the next 25 years, they will have a significant and positive impact on all areas of Winnipeg. The Winnipeg Recreation Strategy will transform service, and work to ensure that new and refurbished facilities are more welcoming, accessible, and inclusive for all Winnipeggers. The Winnipeg Parks Strategy will provide direction for renewal, operations, and maintenance of parks spaces, amenities, and services to ensure all Winnipeggers are able to enjoy the city’s countless greenspaces for years to come.

    We want to hear from you! Phase 2 public engagement has begun.

    We developed drafts of both the Recreation Strategy and Parks Strategy following Phase 1 public engagement. The strategies will provide a 25-year framework to help guide recreation and parks programs, services, policies, standards and procedures, and future investment in existing and new infrastructure.

    Please visit the Document Library to view the draft Recreation Strategy and draft Parks Strategy.

    The City is now beginning Phase 2 of engagement. We are asking for your feedback to confirm the draft strategies reflect your values and priorities, and are providing an opportunity for you to identify any concerns. We are inviting Winnipeggers to provide their feedback through a parks survey, recreation survey, and at the following online workshops:

Online surveys were accepted until June 30, 2018. A public engagement summary is now available and provides an overview of the feedback collected for the project.

    In Phase 1, we asked you what you value most, how you currently use recreation and parks, and how you want to use recreation and parks in the future. Phase 1 engagement included an online survey, three open houses, and stakeholder workshops.

    The City is asking for your feedback on what you want from recreation and parks services and infrastructure and where your priorities lie. Much of Winnipeg’s existing recreation and parks infrastructure is at or near the end of its useful lifecycle, and we need to find out where Winnipeggers want to see future investment.

    Our public engagement goals for this project are to:

    • Understand how Winnipeggers value recreation and parks in the city;
    • Understand the recreation and parks needs of residents and user groups;
    • Gather input on recreation and parks usage, opportunities and constraints; and
    • Communicate how public input was used to help shape the Recreation & Parks Strategies.

    Phase 1 Engagement

    In Phase 1, we want to know what you value most, how you currently use recreation and parks, and how you want to use recreation and parks in the future. Phase 1 engagement will include an online survey, two open houses, and stakeholder workshops.

    Phase 2 Engagement

    In Phase 2, we will ask for your feedback on some of the draft policies and strategies we are considering as part of the Recreation & Parks Strategies development. After consideration of feedback, data, and analysis from Phase 1, members of the public will have the opportunity to provide feedback and let us know if we are headed in the right direction.
