We visited Assiniboine Park during the spring. Unfortunately, the conservatory was closed. But the zoo and the rest of the park were open. The park itself is beautiful. There is a lot of open space for people to use for relaxation. It is a must see not only does it have a great zoo which is over a large outdoor area and contains many beautiful animals in open settings. There is also a wonderful floral English garden which has been visited by many dignitaries including the Queen of England. When you pass through this garden it connects to the Leo Mal sculpture gardens which has many rock sculptures which were done by the artist of the same name.

After a great first visit one evening and some shots of the geese and ducks on the still icy pond, and such a great walk, I had to go back for a longer visit on a sunny warm day. Walking along the bike trail beside the Assiniboine River, I enjoyed the many birds, some of which I managed to photograph. Then visited the Leo Moy sculptures and listened to croaking frogs while enjoying the gazebo and the Moses and bear sculptures. Fantastic, yet I'll have to return to see the English Garden in bloom. What a wonderful place for the people of Winnipeg and visitors. No admission unless you want to see the zoo.

So much to do in this Gem of a park!. Walk, bicycle, lays around, snack, enjoy a restaurant, play cricket, see the excellent Winnipeg Zoo, ride a train. Totally worthwhile!

Assiniboine Park has so much to offer everyone. To start, this is where the Winnipeg Zoo is and it has lots of fantastic exhibits, Prairie Buffalo, Churchill Polar Bears, Tigers, Monkeys, and so much more. There is even a Tropical House exhibiting animals and reptiles from tropical locales and a summer Butterfly House. There is a spectacular English Garden blooming all summer with a breath taking Leo Mol Sculpture Garden right beside. This is all across from the Duck Pond, that turns into a skating rink in the winter. The Qualico Centre has a great restaurant serving breakfast and lunch that bright and airy and even has an outside patio and there is a take-out window - for those who want to picnic but forgot the basket! The Park has lots of green space for picnics and get-togethers and along the river to the west of the Leo Mol Gardens, there are even BBQ pits with picnic tables. In the summer there are shows at the Lyric Theatre - which is right behind the large centrally located Pavilion building. In the Pavilion, there are a couple floors of art museums and one very interesting area is dedicated to Winnie the Pooh - who is originally from Winnipeg - and showcases the original Winnie the Pooh painting from England, done by Ernest Howard Shepard, who illustrated A. A. Milne's children's classic books. The Park is open to all visitors for free - only the zoo has an admission fee with a discount for children and seniors. This Park is truly an oasis in the middle of the great city of Winnipeg.
