This trail park is being built for current and many generations of the future, echoing the multi-generational impact the Richardson family has left across communities here in Manitoba. We’d like to express a sincere thanks to Bruce Curle for his enthusiastic and local support for the Squirrel Hills Trail Park which played an important role in the decision that led to today’s funding announcement.”
