New Project: Bittersweet Way
Bittersweet Way is a multi-phase project for Bishop Grandin Greenway at the corner of St. Mary's Road and Bishop Grandin Boulevard. The picture above is the original concept and is being refined as work progresses.
See the Gallery for photos of Bittersweet Way!
The site will include:
A site plan for the commemorative seating area and adjoining path has been drafted with the assistance of the City of Winnipeg.
We are working with the City Historian, in consultation with Métis and First Nations representatives, on the development of historical plaques for the commemorative circle.
In addition, a preliminary design for bilingual "Bishop Grandin Greenway" retaining wall signage has been completed. This new feature promises to be an eye-catching "front door" to welcome visitors to the Greenway
All of this will be happening at the site of an old homestead of the NE corner of Bishop Grandin Blvd and St.Mary's Rd !
Past Projects: Bike Repair
In 2017, visitors along the Bishop Grandin Greenway noticed new bicycle repair stations along the path. These were installed to support the active community who use the greenway for work and fun.
Past Projects: Tree Planting
With the generous assistance of the Bluebird Fund, 60 trees and shrubs were planted in the fall of 2017. All plantings were bird-friendly and correspond to the City of Winnipeg's list of native trees or trees appropriate for our environment.
