In 2009, the Assiniboine Park Conservancy unveiled a bold redevelopment plan that is breathing new life into Assiniboine Park and Zoo.
The redevelopment will be completed in several phases.The first phase focused on renewal in the Heart of the Park. The second phase involves the ongoing revitalization of Assiniboine Park Zoo, highlighted by the opening of the Journey to Churchill exhibit. In the next phase of the redevelopment, we will shift our focus from the animal kingdom to the life-sustaining world of plants with an iconic new horticultural attraction that will replace the existing Conservatory.
In just a few short years, with the support of the private and public sectors, we have added tremendous value to the Park. By building innovative facilities and exhibits such as the Qualico Family Centre and the Zoo’s new Journey to Churchill exhibit, instituting operational disciplines, and developing creative and informative programming, the Park continues to gain a reputation as a world-class destination.
