The park rental process is now much simpler


With warmer weather on the way, our family is looking forward to enjoying all that Winnipeg summers have to offer, and I hope your family will too.

Many of you use the city’s parks to organize family and community events.

I am now pleased to announce that the electronic park rental form was launched earlier this spring, alongside a revitalized web portal on parks at

“This new form really makes the rental process easier, more efficient and more intuitive for Winnipeggers,” said Dave Domke, manager of parks and green spaces for the city.

The new form allows potential renters to select their party size, preferred site and preferred date, enter additional information, such as equipment and insurance requirements, and then submit the form online for approval and follow-up.

Prior to electronic form, booking a site relied entirely on phone, email, mail and in-person processes. Reservation requests were submitted through 311 or directly by residents using paper forms and were processed manually, which sometimes took several business days.

The new form speeds up this process and gives users the freedom to explore multiple sites before making their request. As we head into a busy summer season, we are excited to offer Winnipeggers an easier way to plan their days in the park.
