Bold, Visionary, and Optimistic

Winnipeg will get only one national urban park. We must make the most of this historic opportunity. Like our forebears, who created the Winnipeg Parks System, the Floodway, and The Forks, let us be visionary, bold, and optimistic, so that future generations can look back and say: “This was the right idea, at the right time”.
