I'm very happy to report that Roblin Park in Charleswood is one of fifteen City-owned community centres that will receive funding for renovations through the City of Winnipeg’s Community Centre Renovation Grant program (CCRGP).
“As the new normal unfolds before us Community Centres will need to be what they were decades ago, a place for the community to come together,” said Councillor Kevin Klein. "The Community Centre Renovation Grant program is a resource that helps provides some funding for facility improvements.”
The CCRGP received 16 applications requesting a total of $1,165,157.91 during the spring 2020 intake period. Roblin Park's application and fourteen others were approved, totaling $1,158,739.71.

Since the program’s inception in 2012, the City has invested $8,821,624.99 toward 195 community centre applications for renovations across the city.
