The Winnipeg Trails Association and Storefront Manitoba invite design teams to submit proposals for a permanent bench to be located along the Trans Canada Trail. We are asking you to put your skills to work and challenge the concept of a ‘common’ bench. We are looking for an intervention that has the power to stop people in their tracks and provide a place to wait, rest, read and more. The Winnipeg Trails Association is a coalition of volunteer trail builders and trail users who are focused on accelerating trail development and connectivity in Winnipeg.
