When the scope of the NWMP was enlarged to include all federal police work and headquarters were transferred to Ottawa; the McNab neighbourhood continued to be the home of the RCMP training facilities and more recently the RCMP Heritage Centre.

Grassick Park soccer pitch and two other parks are in the McNab neighbourhood.
The Community Association has played a major role in the redevelopment of McNab Park by adding new amenities, including trees, benches, picnic tables and flower pots. Representatives of the Community Association are proud to call the McNab neighbourhood home because of the historical significance of the neighbourhood and the beautiful park space along Wascana Creek.
