The Federal government has made an investment in the 100th anniversary of the founding of Transcona, a small community founded in 1912 that amalgamated with Winnipeg in 1972.
The 480 thousand dollar investment will transform an empty lot into the Transcona Centennial Square, with the construction of an amphitheatre and clock tower.
It will provide all Winnipeg residents with rich community and cultural experiences, while preserving the city’s historical heritage.
Peter Martin, President and Chair of the Transcona Playground Renewal Association says the centennial project is a legacy to the 100-year history of Transcona and its pioneers, as well as a venue for entertainment and cultural activities throughout the year.
