Urban green spaces provide multiple benefits that are necessary to our City. Benefits are economic, health, well-being, social inclusion, climate change mitigation, education, recreation, biodiversity and more.
A Winnipeg “Master Plan for Green Space” is needed for City-wide planning for river corridors, trees, green spaces and natural areas and to support informed decision making based on a rational and transparent approach.
The City has begun work on a Parks Plan and park surveys that could contribute to components of a Master Plan for Green Space.
