Assiniboine Park Zoo, Winnipeg Reviews
The volunteers are amazing and the kids thought the extreme bugs were pretty neat. The baby snow leopards were cute and funny. I do miss the lions and a few other animals. The kids also loved the butterfly garden. The only downsize is how expensive it is. I understand they are trying to raise money for the zoo but the prices are over the top. The gift shop items were $15 for a little stuffed animal keychain or $30 for a 6 inch stuffed animal and they really weren't anything special. They should offer less expensive toys for the kids, very few people can afford $30 for a small stuffed animal.
This place is awesome! We went on a cooler summer day right when they opened, so it wasn't too busy. All the animals were super active! The peacocks were really cool just randomly walking around the park. The tiger was pacing back and forth. The polar bear was enjoying a swim around the glass tunnel. The monkeys were swinging everywhere. All of the food and gifts shops were incredibly over priced but that is to be expected I suppose. All the animals looked healthy and well cared for so that is what matters to us. Well worth the trip our family made specifically to see this zoo!
Wow great to be back at the "new and improved" Assiniboine Zoo! Lots of new displays and modern new look and what an amazing Polar bear experience now! You can walk under the swim tank in a clear tunnel and really see the bears up close in their elements. Then the new restaurant has a panoramic view of the enclosure where again you can see the bears up close and personal I their large habitat. An amazing experience and definitely must-see when visiting Winnipeg!
Love the changes that our Zoo has made since I was a child and started coming here. While it is not a huge zoo, they have a lot of variety, and they have animals specially selected to handle Manitoba winters too. The new enclosure for the wolves is really nice and right when you come into the park, on the way to the polar bears and seals. The arctic foxes are really fun, the tiger enclosure is great as are the red pandas in the tropical house. Definitely a fun family destination, and even better in the summer when more of the animals are out and walking around.
The zoo is hit and miss. You can't control when the animals will be active and I understand that but then offer other activities especially when people are paying $20/person. Maybe a safari type excursion would be nice. I also appreciate that these animals are in the zoo for their own protection and any animals that CAN be rehabilitated and released back to the wild would be.
