The new greenhouse at Assiniboine Park is complete. Located south-east of The Pavilion, near the Conservatory Drive entrance to the Park, the building features a sustainable design that is efficient, both in energy use and how it functions for the Park. Partitioned spaces and precise control over temperature and humidity optimize growing conditions and will lead to more options for all the gardens at the Park. Exciting ideas for bigger, bolder displays are already blooming with favourites like animal mosaics near the top of the list. The greenhouse is also much better for the people who work here. It’s an exciting new chapter in the development of Canada’s Diversity Gardens, and a critical part of the Park’s redevelopment.
