Streuber Family Children's Garden

Located in the Nature Playground, the Streuber Family Children's Garden is a bright, whimsical garden inspired by the classic childhood board game of Snakes and Ladders. A tree-lined path leads visitors to a patchwork of raised beds overflowing with flowers and foliage set among a checkerboard grid of pathways. A friendly snake made of woven branches A cheerful band of merry musical frogs silently serenade the sky. Flowerbeds interspersed throughout the playground paint the landscape in a rainbow of vibrant colour. 

Herb Garden

The Herb Garden, located just north of the Park entrance at Shaftsbury Blvd., was created in 1997 in cooperation with the Herb Society of Manitoba and features a wide variety of culinary and medicinal herbs in a traditional circular layout. Herb Society volunteers maintain the garden in cooperation with the Assiniboine Park Conservancy. A walk through the Herb Garden provides visitors with an inspirational, esthetic and sensory space experience, as well as a means to see and learn about herbs.

Garden of Life

The Garden of Life, a cooperative effort with the Transplant Manitoba - Gift of Life Program, is also maintained by dedicated volunteers, and was created in 1998. This beautiful garden is located in the English Garden. The Garden of Life is filled with flowers that depict the shape, colour or care of the vital organs used in human transplantation. The Garden is very special because it honours the many unsung heroes who gave the gift of life, hope and happiness through organ donation. It is a tribute to living related and unrelated donors, organ and tissue donors and their families.
