Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Brandon's newest community recreation area officially opened on Tuesday afternoon.
Mayor Rick Chrest and MLA Reg Helwer were on hand to officially open the Valleyview Recreation Hub.
"It's incredibly important that the City of Brandon recognizes that recreation is a need and that it needs to be available year-round," said University Ward Councillor Shaun Cameron. "We look at this as a great year-round opportunity for people to get outside, be active and be healthy."
The Hub is located right next to Valleyview School on Whillier Drive, features a splash park and a new outdoor hockey / skating rink as well as green space.
