Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kirkbridge Park (Bairdmore Boulevard, Winnipeg)

Development of the Richmond West neighbourhood of Winnipeg was begun in 1978. A park, bordered by Bairdmore Boulevard, Marrington Road, Kirkbridge Drive, Calderwood Bay, and Groveland Bay, was only partially developed until 1994 when a Community Action Committee led by Chairman Ted Findlay, rallied community fundraising efforts to finish it. With financial assistance from the City of Winnipeg, as well as local businesses including Ladco Homes, Hy-Line Credit Union, Canada Safeway, and Robin’s Donuts, the facilities (playground, athletic fields, baseball diamond, and pathways) were unveiled officially at a ceremony on 11 September 1998. A plaque commemorates the project and its contributors.
