Transcona Aquatic Park
Transcona Aquatic Centre is a popular choice for Winnipeg Water Parks
4 years ago Transcona’s new water park attracted so many people that the local councillor pushed for similar facilities to be built in other Winnipeg neighborhoods. 1:40 Transcona’s new waterpark has prompted the local councillor to advocate for similar facilities within other Winnipeg areas.
According to Transcona Coun., many people paid $5.8million to see the Transcona Aquatic Centre in its first 10 days of opening on June 30. 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 spoke out Monday in front of the aquatic center, which Wyatt claimed was coming from every part of Winnipeg. It took Wyatt nearly three years to build. "It indicates that there is an unmet demand. Transcona's inadequacy creates frustration. Wyatt will propose a motion to establish a capital reserve for similar projects.
This motion could refer to the 2018 financial process. The city is asked to make an annual contribution of $2.5-$3 million over 10 years to support the creation of 5 to 6 additional water parks that are comparable to Transcona.
Wyatt surmises the city could use the same design and save money in the process.
We have plans. The designs are now available. He said that we don't need to pay the soft costs again. "We're aware we have to renew many older pools and wading areas in the next 10 or so years. It might be a good idea to do this now.
