This is a must see attraction if you go on a trip to Winnipeg. the Zoos Arctic exhibit is incomparable to any other id say in North America since Manitoba is home to Churchill which is the Polar Bear capital of the world. If you do not check this out, you're missing out! There is a wide variety of animals all over the world from Polar Bears to Tigers to Kangaroos. Its great for the family and mainly out doors so its good for some fresh air. I recommend checking out this must see stop in Winnipeg.
Really nice zoo with a good selection of animals to see. The enclosures are very elaborate and where appropriate very spacious. The highlight is definitely the journey to Churchill exhibit featuring animals from northern Manitoba. They have about 11 polar bears as of this review. They are mostly rescued animals too so that’s a plus. Good education center and lots of friendly volunteers with lots of info to share.
I usually don't go to zoos but this one being more of a rescue/refugee zoo, is a must visit, you contribute to a good cause. Impressive amount of exotic animals from Canada and the world. Occasional temporary displays are great too.
The Assiniboine Park Zoo offers family fun for everyone! Check out cool climate creatures at the Journey to Churchill exhibit and discover over 200 other species throughout the zoo. You can even take the seasonal trolley to The Forks after your visit with the zoo’s beautiful, majestic, animals.
I took my 3.5 year old daughter here and it was so much fun! We barely got to see half the zoo in the 3 hours we we're there! They were also celebrating the red panda, and had lots of fun festivities and learning experiences. I had no idea they had a butterfly garden or an Australian outback walk-through. So awesome! When our legs got tired, they even had a free shuttle tour. There were so many animals to see and lots we're out and about! We even passed by a few peackocks walking around freely. I was definitely impressed with the Tundra restaurant as they had quite a few gluten free and tasty options! I think I will look into getting a membership here!! Oh and they have a giant insect exhibition worth checking out right now that's included in admission. SO MUCH TO SEE!!! 😊
