CONGRATULATIONS to the winner of the 2017 / 2018 BENCHmark Competition! GRIDLOCK by Thomas Nuytten will be part of the Pandora Pathway this summer! Stay tuned.

The Winnipeg Trails Association and Storefront Manitoba invite design teams to submit proposals for a permanent bench to be located along the Pandora Pathway. 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.
