The Manitoba government is spending over $620,000 on recreational projects in northwest Winnipeg.
One of the 19 projects to receive provincial cash is École Stanley Knowles School, which will see a new, state-of-the-art outdoor basketball court. The project will include replacement of the existing cement and old poles with a new basketball court including fencing, bleachers and lighting available for students, as well as the community.
“Building maintenance is expensive and, by helping fund renovations to public buildings and recreational facilities, we extend the use of gymnasiums and community centres, and allow their boards to commit their budgets to programs that benefit children, youth and families,” Premier Greg Selinger said.
A full list of the projects to receive funding is available on the province’s website.
