Brandon Area Community Foundation celebrates Manitoba’s 150 Birthday!

Through the Build 150 program, BACF celebrated our Province’s 150th anniversary by leaving a $100,000 legacy with bricks and mortar projects!

Thank you to The James Richardson & Sons, Limited for contributing $50,000 to BACF in matching funds for projects that will have a lasting impact and leave a legacy in our community.

Located at the Brandon Riverbank Discovery Centre, features the Westman Dreams for Kids Accessibility Park. This accessibility park is the first of kind in Westman and will benefit children in need of somewhere fun and safe to play for generations to come. The park has a rubber surface for wheelchair accessibility as well as accessible variations of popular playground items including a teeter totter, spinner and numerous interactive ground-level games and activities that provide an opportunity for children of all abilities to play.

The completion of this playground was truly a community endeavor. Thank you to the Westman Dream for Kids organization, our local supporters and The Richardson Foundation for helping make this playground a Build MB 150 project!
