A new park has opened in Winnipeg, named after community leader Inderjit Claire.
The park on Concordia Avenue East in Transcona was officially opened Saturday morning.
The park has some forest and natural areas, along with pathways, open play space and a new play structure for kids.
Claire was a science teacher who moved to Winnipeg in 1986, and in 2002 received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his contributions to the community. He died in 2004.
The park was funded by the city and province, at the cost of $589,000.
