Province announces more than $4 million in upgrades

A new natural playground, waterfront family picnic plaza and upgrades that make the beach and boardwalk more accessible to families and people with disabilities will ensure Grand Beach Provincial Park remains one of Canadas greatest summer destinations while growing the local economy. This announcement was made by Conservation and Water Stewardship Minister Gord Mackintosh. 

With kilometres of pristine, white sand, Grand Beach is a popular summer hangout for hundreds of thousands of people. I want this to be a place that Manitoba families and visitors to our province will continue to enjoy each season, said Mackintosh. Thats why were making the beach more accessible with a fully paved area from the parking lot to the new boardwalk and creating a waterfront family picnic plaza and play area. 

This year Manitoba government will give the entry plaza a facelift with a design reflecting the historical connection to the railroad, and add a wide paved walkway from the plaza that begins at the parking lot and connects directly to the west end of the boardwalk, where food and retail vendors are located, and ends with a fully accessible ramp that rolls out onto the beach. 

This fall the derelict beach hotel will also be demolished to make way for the construction of a new waterfront family picnic plaza with attractive shade canopies, benches, tables and fire pits, along with a playground that uses natural features like cottonwood trees and boulders reclaimed from flood-ravaged St. Ambroise Provincial Park to create structures that encourage curiosity, creative play and exploring ecosystems. 

The minister said more than $4 million of capital investments will be completed in Grand Beach by 2020 including the electrification of additional campsites and waste-water facility upgrades to help protect Lake Winnipeg. These improvements build on other recent infrastructure upgrades at Grand Beach including constructing a new, fully accessible washroom building and the extensive reconstruction of the boardwalk after storm damage in late 2010. 

With more draws like these, more families can enjoy a beautiful summer day at the water and that means more customers for our community businesses that provide food, entertainment and other services, said Steve Strang, mayor of St. Clements. These investments mean more stability for future development at Grand Beach that will build on its hundred-year history and ensure it becomes one of Canadas premier summer destinations with something for everyone. 

In addition, the Blue Flag Program, which is endorsed by the United Nations, has renewed its certification of West Beach at Grand Beach Provincial Park for the second season in a row. Under the program, beaches are reviewed on 33 criteria related to water quality, environmental education, environmental management, safety and services. The standards ensure the beach is protected and that public use will not harm the ecosystem. Beaches in 46 countries are certified under the Blue Flag program, 18 beaches are certified in Canada. 

The Blue Flag certification is a highly sought-after designation that shows Grand Beach can meet international high standards for beach safety and environmental protection, said Mackintosh. We know that Manitobans cherish the clean and safe water found here, and we continue to work with stakeholders to ensure our water is protected. 

For an NBA player, being on a summer league roster before your third year in the league must feel like waking up in the sweet summertime afternoon at your parents house months after theyve issued you a time-to-move-out ultimatum. Theyre your parents, so theyll probably let you stay, but theyre frustrated,The glassbottles is not only critical to professional photographers. and youre frustrated too. Jan, we all want whats best for you. If you could show some initiative and dominate this summer league, your father and I just know you could be the ideal three. 

Although Vesely and Singleton are entering their third year in the league,This is a basic background on parkingguidance. the mitigating factor here is that there was no Summer League play after they were drafted in 2011 due to the NBA labor dispute and lockout. This means that although this is their third summer with the Wizards (time flies!), its only their second opportunity to participate in the majesty of the Vegas league. 

Still, missing out on Vegas during the lockout didnt necessitate an anachronous return after their second year for recent Wizards draft picks Kevin Seraphin and Trevor Booker. Kevin Seraphin had an excuse, he spent last summer playing for Team France in the Olympics. But Trevor Booker? He informed the team late in the 2011-12 season that he wouldnt be participating. 

In Washingtons first four Summer League contests of 2012, a buffed and beefed-up Vesely was, for the most part, mildly impressive.Have a look at all our cleaningservic models starting at 59.90US$ with free proofing. (Vesely only played two minutes in the fifth game due to an Achilles injury that he later claimed hampered his ability to work out and slowed his progress over the remainder of last summer.) His Las Vegas per game averages of 9.25 points (on 51.6 percent shooting),We rounded up 30 bridesmaids dresses in every color and style that are both easy on the eye and somewhat easy on the airpurifiertarget. 6.5 rebounds, 1.75 assists, and 1.5 steals in 29 minutes per game were more palatable than what would follow: 51 games worth of 2.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.1 fouls in just 11.8 minutes per contest in the 2012-13 NBA season. 

The most obvious takeaway from last years summer league, at least before the real games started,Other companies want a piece of that rfidtag action was that Vesely had worked hard to improve his outside shot. Opposing teams were happy to leave Vesely wide open, and Jan was confident enough to pull up and shoot when presented with a clean look. Vesely certainly didnt set the desert on fire in Vegas, but for the hundreds (HUNDREDS) of Washington fans paying attention, the result was cause for a shy brand of optimism.
