“Excellent park, zoo - not so much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

This park is gorgeous- lots of walking paths, gardens and a wonderful children's playground with limited egress to help keep kids from wandering away. The zoo, however is undergoing reconstruction. The polar bears seem to be the only thing receiving attention . The rest of the zoo is outdated & rather neglected looking. It is disappointing that they are charging full price for a work in progress; in fact rates go up to around $18.00 soon.

“The perfect family experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Assiniboine Park is the King of parks in Winnipeg. For a family with children, it has a world class zoo which will be opening the polar bear pavilion sometime this year. There is a fee for the zoo only. They also have an english garden attached to the Leo Mol sculpture and museum. There are other attractions in the park. I have enjoyed my visit to the park many times and is a must see for visitors to Winnipeg.

“Awesome Park love the polar bears”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This is a must when visiting Winnipeg! The polar bears are all babes and from MB. Beautiful place to picnic, watch a movie, or see ballet in the park.

“not spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Not spectacular, but has it's moments. Bring lots of water, for there is little shade. The monkeys are always my favorite.
