The Health & RecPlex is a major recreational and wellness expansion to the University of Winnipeg’s Duckworth Centre at the heart of the downtown campus. This state of the art facility accommodates a multitude of sports such as soccer, flag football and track and field, as well as cultural and community events. The Health & RecPlex features a large multi-use artificial turf field, a four-lane rubberized sprint track, fitness studios, retractable batting cages, a multi-events room, student lounge space, and an underground parkade.
The project was developed in close consultation with all university and community stakeholders. The vision emerging from this process is to create a facility that is equally open and appealing to the university’s athletics and kinesiology users, the surrounding local neighbourhoods, partnering organizations, and the broader community.
