Brandon Riverbank Inc., a non-profit charitable organization, began in 1995 embarking on the long-term process of developing the area in accordance with the 25-year Assiniboine River Corridor Master Plan. The organization, governed by a Board of Directors, is focused on its mission of developing the Assiniboine River Corridor to be a gathering place, connecting people with nature. Over time, the riverbank has been developed to become Brandon’s “central park”, providing a serene and beautiful place for families to play and pursue a healthy lifestyle. In addition, the area has become home to many events that contribute to an active, prosperous community including a multitude of charity walks and runs, the city’s Canada Day Celebrations, a farmer’s market, meetings, weddings and family gatherings.
The Board and Staff of Brandon Riverbank Inc. continue to strive to create an accessible and healthy environment for the community’s residents and visitors to enjoy in every season. We deliver educational programs to school-aged children, promoting their appreciation and stewardship of the Assiniboine River and its surrounding habitat, ensuring its vitality for generations to come.The Board and Staff of Brandon Riverbank Inc. continue to strive to create an accessible and healthy environment for the community.
