  • Always events happening here, lots going on. Nice park, but just a little crowded as times. Don't bother with the Zoo, it's awful. 
  • I love going to Assiniboine park because it's good for all ages. You can go to the zoo or have a horse ride through the park or rent a bike car. Or even go to the playground! 
  • The park is attractive and well maintained. There are many things to do in the park at no cost. Park Cafe is good. Leo Mol sculpture garden is interesting. The zoo is within the park and worth visitin...  more »

  • This is more than a park, its a beautiful educational setting into another world. A perfect place to enjoy what nature has to offer. Everyone who works here has pride in their jobs you can tell just by looking at the grounds.
  • This zoo has definitely gotten a lot better. I've been many times in my life but since the renovations and additions this is now a real zoo worthy of comparison to other zoos in north american cities. I hope they keep adding new additions and exhibits in future.
  • Beautiful place to go for a walk or enjoy the nice outdoors. Lots of things to check out and explore in the area. Children's park has been newly renovated and the park is always clean and we'll taken care of
  • One of my favourite places in Winnipeg. Beautiful place, peaceful, and a lot of activities happen there during the year
  • Nice urban park with an abundance of green spaces, well-marked walk paths, and even a children's playground. Always good for a nice stroll but insects do come out in droves at sundown during the summer months, making for a bit of an inconvenient experience.
