Kilcona Park Master Plan To Be Unveiled

Posted by / in Information /

Last March, City of Winnipeg administrators and consultants presented the Kilcona Park Master Plan Stakeholder Committee with three options for the future development of the park. Of concern to thousands of Kilcona dog owners was the fact that each option proposed a significant reduction in the size of Kilcona’s off-leash area to allow for expansion of the ponds for dragon boat and kayak racing, and create space for off-road biking.

City Council was scheduled to approve the Kilcona master plan in May however the entire park planning process was delayed after Kilcona Park dog owners objected to the proposed reduction of the off-leash area and mounted a vigorous campaign to persuade the City to abandon these plans.

In April KPDC Board members held a series of meetings with City Councillors Jeff Browaty and Russ Wyatt, and the planning team to present an alternative plan approved by KPDC members.

The KPDC plan calls for an expansion, rather than a reduction, of Kilcona’s off-leash area. As a result of these meetings Councillors instructed the planning team to revisit options for the future development of Kilcona Park.

This week the City announced that the draft master plan is now complete. Two open houses are being held to provide an opportunity for the public to review the draft plan and provide input. City administrators and consultants are interested in hearing from park user groups and other stakeholders.

KPDC’s Board of Directors strongly encourages all Kilcona dog owners to attend one of the open houses and participate in the review process.
