There’s a new public outdoor basketball court opening in Winnipeg!
Construction of the new basketball court at Sinclair Park Community Centre is scheduled to begin in June 2023 and is anticipated to be open to the public in August 2023.
“The new outdoor basketball court at the Sinclair Park Community Centre will provide athletes of all ages and levels with a place to stay active, hone their skills, and create friendships through sport,” said Kevin Lamoureux, Parliamentary Secretary to the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons and Member of Parliament for Winnipeg North, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities. “Our government is proud to work with our partners to invest in projects that build healthy and resilient communities.”
Council approved funding for the project through the COVID-19 Economic Response and Recovery Plan, which focuses on enhancing active transportation, improving regional park infrastructure, and adding accessible recreational amenities in underserved areas of the city. The budget for all project costs, including design, construction, and regulatory requirements, is estimated at $290,000, with $286,000 of the project budget funded through the federal Canada Community-Building Fund and $4,000 from the City of Winnipeg.
