Floodway to feature recreation, forests, hills – Winnipeg Free Press

Winnipeg Free Press reports

“It may be only 700 metres wide but the redevelopment of the Red River Floodway will be bigger than 16 Assiniboine Parks by the time it’s finished in a decade or two.

Jeff Frank, the landscape architect of the proposed development, said 250 metres on either side of the 48-kilometre portion of the channel between St. Norbert and Lockport will be revitalized, with a combination of nature and recreation-friendly amenities. It will cover about 6,500 acres, dwarfing the 400 acres belonging to Assiniboine park, he said.”
