Garden Nature / Park
Named after the "Stone Sioux" people who lived in the area originally, Assiniboine Park harbors a plethora of attractions to appreciate. The park was founded over 100 years ago and now features indoor botanical gardens, which are home to 8000 species of plants, a theater, a sculpture garden, and a zoo, home to 300 animal species. Feed the ducks at the pond, or take the kids to the nature playground. During the summer you can take part in frequent events and activities, so make sure you check out what's on when you’re in town.

  • It's a shame that they are ripping out century old tress to create new attractions, however the park is a beautiful place with great walking, hiking, or biking trails. A perfect place to spend the summer for movies or ballet in the park, jazz in the park garden, and bee-together bikes for friends and family. I've lived and traveled across a lot of Canada and by far one of my favourite parks. Absolutely awful roads however, so leave your low riding luxury cars at home.

  • 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!
  • Awesome park in the middle of a quiet residential neighborhood. Extensive paved paths. Inspired new playground area. Free outdoor shows at the pavilion all summer. Leo mol garden has amazing flowers and is informative!
