Our Vision

Canada is a garden of cultures living in harmony and thriving together. The Leaf is a stunning showcase of our diversity, expressed through plants that shape our lives here and across the globe.

Gardens at The Leaf: Now Open
The gardens are an expansive new outdoor garden attraction, and are now open. Plan your visit to the gardens.

The Leaf: Coming Soon
The Leaf will become a magnificent indoor, multi-seasonal attraction, and one of the most visually stunning places of its kind in North America. 

The Leaf - Canada's Diversity Gardens is the final major phase in the redevelopment of Assiniboine Park and Zoo that was launched in 2009.
