Let's enjoy the spaces that bring us together.
Co-op Community Spaces has been developed to help protect, beautify and improve spaces across Western Canada. In keeping with our ongoing commitment to invest in the communities we serve, Co-op will contribute up to $1 million to help support projects that improve the places Western Canadians meet, play, learn and share.
In 2018, Dauphin Derailleurs received $150,000 to develop the Co-op Community Family Trail at Northgate Trails near the north entrance of Riding Mountain National Park. This multi-use trail has been well-used with more features being added.
In 2019, Ste Rose School received $32,000 to develop an Outdoor Classroom and Nature Playground which is enjoyed by the entire community.
In 2021, Dauphin Recreation Services received $105,000 to create and develop a fully accessible, four-season toboggan run in the heart of Dauphin as Phase 1 of Maamawi Park.
In 2023, the Municipality of Ste Rose received $85,000 towards Phase 2 for the Turtle River Trails project which includes a Nature Play Park and Disc Golf Course.
