Transcona Aquatic Park
Transcona Aquatic Centre has a strong attendance. This calls for more Winnipeg water parks
4 years earlier Transcona's water park was attracting large lines and people. The councillor of this area has been pushing to have similar facilities built in other Winnipeg communities. 1:40 Transcona's water park has seen large crowds, which led to the councillor of the area pushing for similar facilities in other Winnipeg neighborhoods.
According to Transcona Coun. statistics, thousands of people visited the $5.8 million facility in 10 days. Russ Wyatt.
Average daily attendance has been 673, almost double the maximum occupancy for any given time. Within an hour of the facility opening, queues form.
Wyatt told reporters Monday that people are arriving from all parts of Winnipeg and even outside Winnipeg. This was despite the fact that the building of the aqua centre took the city three years. This tells us there's an uptake in demand. Transcona: An incomplete pool causes frustration. Wyatt intends to propose Wednesday's motion at Winnipeg's final council meeting before summer break. Wyatt wants to call for the creation of a new capital reserve in order to fund similar water parks within older neighbourhoods.
Referring to the 2018 Budget process, the motion calls for $2.5million to $3million per year to fund five to six additional water parks, similar to Transcona's.
Wyatt believes that the city could adopt the same design, and thus save money.
We have plans. The designs are now available. We don't have to pay for those soft costs all over again," he said. We know that we will need to replace a lot older wading and swimming pools within the next 10 years. This is a great time to start.
