Assiniboine Park in central Winnipeg is a gathering place for all who enjoy outdoor activity, beautiful gardens, trips to the zoo, and opportunities to get fit and play. Its conservatory and gardens house tropical plants, a fine formal garden, an English garden with winding paths and free-flowing flowerbeds, and an array of bronze sculptures amidst colorful blooms.
A mini steam train provides park tours for all ages, and the café offers breakfast and lunch at affordable prices. The nature playground for children has water and sand play, tunnels, net bridges, and a crow's nest. Joggers and walkers make year-round use of the park's Terry Fox fitness trail. Park-goers can enjoy bandshell concerts and a variety of stage performances. In winter, the park becomes a wonderland with an outdoor skating rink, tobogganing hills, and cross-country ski trails.
