I grew up in Winnipeg in the '70's, after the Pan-Am games were held there. They built an excellent aquatics centre( Pan-Am Pool, with 2 world class pools) as well as an outdoor velodrome. The pool is still in use today, although I believe the cycling track succumbed to the prairie weather. Projects like this aren't there to make money, but to contribute to the overall quality of life for the citizens, which in turn creates more development. Personally, I'd like to see Ivor Wynne, Brian Timmins and Scott Park leveled and a new multi-use sports complex built there (including the velodrome and new public fields). It's already on the proposed LRT line and leaves the waterfront open for residential/shopping development.
