  • This was the first time we went. Very nice exhibits. I have mixed feelings about a zoo but the animals looked like they were cared for. Seals and polar bear in the pool were having fun, but obviously ...  more »

  • With all their renovations and additions to the park you'd think they could afford to maintain their soccer pitches at least somewhat. Fields are filled with small bumps and holes, terrible for reliably controlling the ball. The grass by the nets are completely gone, making it difficult for the keeper to make saves without getting scraped up by the hard dirt. Construction fences have also been erected right behind one of the nets, making any ball that misses the net have the possibility of being lost over the fence with no entrance. Players have to climb over the fence after the game since there is not way in. The other end has a forest, which is equally as frustrating when it comes to finding and losing soccer balls. I expected better from Assiniboine Park, I hope the pitches can be improved soon this summer.
  • Lots of kid friendly areas, open green space and paths for walking and bike riding. A perfect place to have an outdoor get together with friends and/or family. There are some fire pits in the western parts of the park. All in all, it's a great park!
  • Great park. Big children's park with lots of fun and interesting play things. Nice landscaping. The zoo is inside (the zoo is amazing I highly recommend it) and the coservatory is free and has a wide range of plants. The pavilion is public and has an art gallery inside the 2nd and 3rd floors with interesting Canadian art. The Lyric stage where they host Ballet in the Park and other shows. I had a picnic there and people were flying kites, it's a great multifunctional place for everyone to share.
  • Beautiful park. Great place to catch Pokemon. Lots of nature and open fields. Great playground.
  • This is the gem of Winnipeg with the zoo, English gardens, duck pond and many other places to see. I always enjoy coming here. Today we cycled with a group through the park to FortWhyte Alive. Great palace for both tourists and Winnipegers
