Winnipeg, MB – Winnipeggers are invited to attend a public information session on Monday, January 20, 2020 to learn more about the Tyndall Park Community Centre study and proposed upgrades.

The City recently explored the need for, design options, and costs of a potential renovation and expansion of the Tyndall Park Community Centre to address the community centre’s programming needs and expanded catchment area, and accessibility requirements. Key components proposed in the study include the addition of a new gymnasium and a new multipurpose room to help expand program offerings. Representatives from the Tyndall Park Community Centre and the General Council of Winnipeg Community Centres were engaged as part of the study.

The proposed building upgrades are intended to ensure that the Tyndall Park Community Centre continues to serve the community into the future. An estimate of approximately $8.3 million was developed as part of the study and includes all anticipated construction costs, fees, contingencies, and other factors. Funds are not currently allocated to this project. Project funding will be considered as part of the City’s budget process.
