Assiniboine Park Zoo, Winnipeg Reviews

  • We went here in November so it was quite chilly and not many people. We still really enjoyed it. They have a good variety of animals and the access to each exhibit is easy (almost all are accessible for the disabled, too). We really liked the undersea exhibit with a large plexiglas tunnel that allows you to walk under the water. The harbour seals were fun to watch and would interact with you through the windows. The tiger display allows you to get close to these amazing creatures. Parking is free and abundant. Entry is easy and the maps are good. It takes about 2-3 hours to see everything.

  • World class... amazing polar bear exhibit. Watch them play fight and canoodle while you eat some fries in front of the panoramic cafe windows. Money has improved the zoo enormously...too bad the donors have to plaster their names on everything, but I guess generosity comes at a price.

  • It was an awesome time! A wee bit cold ( i know, its winter lol) but many areas to warm up! Great staff and volunteers with a ton of knowledge to answer any questions...great time! Thank you!!

  • I’ve loved this place since I was a kid. I don’t visit as much but it’s still a great time to spend a few hours. Journey to Churchill is a great addition to the zoo with cool animals!

  • It's not exactly world class, but it's a very nice zoo. They don't do much in the way of exotic animal (besides the dinosaurs of course). The Journey to Churchill exhibit is pretty neat.
