The Manitoba government and a number of partners are jointly investing more than $325,000 to enhance a trail network in Whiteshell Provincial Park with an adaptive re-use of twin pedestrian bridges that were once installed in Winnipeg, Conservation and Climate Minister Sarah Guillemard and Municipal Relations Minister Rochelle Squires announced today. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to find ways to enjoy the great outdoors, and this investment enhances the accessibility of hiking trails,” said Guillemard. “This support will allow families more opportunities to explore our beautiful province while encouraging active and healthy lifestyles.” Once fixtures in King’s Park in south Winnipeg, the two red wooden pedestrian spans have been refurbished and installed at Hanson’s Creek and Cabin Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park in a project spearheaded by Trails Manitoba and Trans Canada Trail.
