Traveling on a budget with young children is easy at Assiniboine Park. The playground itself kept our children entertained for over an hour. We were impressed that this park used all recycled materials to create, and even had a sustainable veggie garden. We ventured behind the playground to a smooth walking trail around a duck pond, which leads to a reasonably priced café. Across the road from the café is a sculpture garden and a frog pond (with live frogs) and a sculpture museum. Sculptures were either on their own or embedded in one of the many impressive flower beds located within the garden. At the front of the park is the conservatory - another freebie, which included more flowers. There is also a zoo - we didn't have time to go - but the price is under $10. We have heard that they also have free movies in the summer - we would have liked to have seen that. You could easily pack a picnic lunch or purchase lunch at the café and spend the day in this lovely park.
