In the heart of downtown Winnipeg’s immigrant community was a park that was virtually forgotten. Central Park had gone from being a prominent, historical landmark to a neglected, high-risk area. After undergoing a revitalization, Central Park’s image has been transformed into a safe and fun place for children and families to enjoy for years to come. At the end of four years and five million dollars raised by the community, the Central Park project was completed, with one of the shining new attractions being the wading pool and aquatic play pad that covers roughly 8,600 sq. ft.
