Administrative history

Development of Winnipeg’s network of public parks began when the Public Parks Board was created by the City of Winnipeg in 1893 and empowered to acquire land for park purposes. In addition to park development, the Parks Board constructed and operated municipal golf courses and swimming pools, was involved in city beautification through tree planting and boulevard maintenance, and managed recreational facilities, the zoo and municipal cemeteries. The Parks Board evolved into the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Winnipeg following a re-organization of municipal government in the greater Winnipeg area in the 1970s.

Custodial history

Transferred from the Planning, Property and Development Department to the City of Winnipeg Archives, 2014-12.

Scope and content

Collection consists of circa 7000 images (photographs, slides/negatives and Polaroids) that capture views of major parks, local playgrounds, golf courses, community club grounds and recreational activities over the whole of the City.
