“A very tranquil place in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The park is very well maintained and offers a nice peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of Winnipeg. You can still hear the traffic but this of course is unavoidable. The buildings on the premise are of a delightful Bavarian architecture and the sculpture garden was particularly nice. Can't wait to go back there.

“ANIMALS!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We went during the off season, so many of the food bars were closed. Bad for a diabetic on a hut day. We got on the shuttle and for the one open year 'round. Lots of construction, should be perfect on 2014, but, we had a lot of fun.

“zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We toured the park which was beautiful. Our real purpose was the zoo which we could not find using our gps. We had to phone the zoo and get directions. We were disappointed with the zoo. Its under construction and no mention was made of that. We spent the morning and then left

“Beautiful park with nice grass and paths”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

There is a good restaurant in the smaller building. Be sure to visit the arboretum/tropical house and walk near the river. The zoo is also fun for families.

There are some cool bike trails near the river. Lay out on the grass and get some sun. Good place to watch fireworks on Canada Day (July 1st).
