RecPlex on Spence Street

The University of Winnipeg  welcomed  more than 100 people to a free Community Open House to tour and experience the UNITED Health and RecPlex on Sunday, October 5, 2014.  Neighbourhood families enjoyed fun activities  such as playing soccer, basketball, and ultimate frisbee.

The $40 million dollar UNITED Health and RecPlex is the most comprehensive athletic and wellness facility ever built in Winnipeg’s inner city.
