Assiniboine Park Zoo, Winnipeg Reviews

  • The cost is too great for what you get at a zoo. I've been to zoo's that cost a little over or under for more variety and a better experience. Several enclosures or under renovation or completely empty. I hope the costs go towards better enclosures with a larger variety of animals. I do appreciate the different animatronic events that they have, cool little to a zoo. Also the volunteers are awesome and very friendly. That I think, is very unique to Winnipeg zoo.

  • A great place to spend time with family. Went today and enjoyed. Not too big and not too small. This was my 1st visit and I liked the place. Has good parking space and it's free. Tundra restaurant has a good view of polar bear habitat and I suggest going there once you are done with the entire park. Spend 30-45 minutes there and you gonna enjoy polar bears resting/ walking in their space.

  • The new additions and expansion are amazing! You can really get up close and personal with the bears and seals, the viewing tunnel where they swim is amazing. A lot different from when I was a kid. I miss Debbie, the old polar bear that lived at the zoo for many years. But what they have done with everything so far is really great. Volunteers and staff are all very warm and friendly. The play area in the restaurant is really great too, my little one enjoyed it very much and honestly I did as well, it was clean and I could actually fit in it and play with her. I'm giving 4 stars because there is still a ton of construction going on and some of the facilities are dated. But it is absolutely worth the trip to see the Journey to Churchill exhibit.

  • The only reason for the missing star is the entrance fee. As a kid, the zoo was a standard summer Sunday excursion for my family, and I used to take my kids there too. Since they started charging for admission it has become a special occasion outing and I think I've been maybe 3 times. My son and his wife love going, and have season passes, and visit it all through the year. We joined them on a nice couple of hours walk, about 2 miles, slowly rambling through the zoo, stopping in the bird house, monkey house etc and having lunch in the Tundra grill. The display areas are very nice, much bigger and more humane than 50 years ago. The animals are impressive, and there are lots of helpful, knowledgeable volunteers, even in the -15 weather we visited during. The Tundra Cafe is a burger style eating place, with lots of support for families. Aunt Sally's Farm is a thing remembered only by us oldies, but the play area here is still fun, and a lot less scary for the animals. An additional feature of the grill is the view. You are looking out at the polar bear area and we got quite the floor show, the bears came right up to the windows and looked in at us, and then proceeded to goof around right in front of us. I had the big burger meal, but there are smaller meals as well as vegetarian options. I just missed the park breakfast meal due to getting there just after 11:00 but it looks like a good deal. Food was very good, hot fresh and generous servings. A bit more than a McD's but the floor show seemed worth it. We explored the aquarium exhibit, watching the seals power round the tank, and were fortunate enough to be given another show by the polar bear who jumped in and swam around and over us. I would like to go back, but the admission fee is pretty high for a pensioner, I'll probably wait till early summer to see the changes and maybe a few more animals.

  • It is a good zoo but lacking in variety of animal. We've been to zoos all over the world. If I had nothing to compare this to I would think it fine. But we've seen spectacular ones in England and the USA. Even Toronto zoo lacks compared to some.
