What we’ve accomplished together is truly extraordinary.

The incredible journey we started over 10 years ago – to completely reimagine what Assiniboine Park could be for our community – is nearing its conclusion.

  • Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC) was created in 2008 by the City of Winnipeg and given a mandate to operate and establish the future vision for the Park and Zoo.
  • In 2009, APC unveiled a redevelopment plan designed to breathe new life into the Park and Zoo, supported by the Imagine a Place Campaign.
  • In 2012, the community phase of the Campaign was launched with a fundraising match challenge that raised $2.1 million.
  • Ten years later, we have come full circle with another match challenge as we work toward the anticipated opening of The Leaf in late 2022.

Canada is a garden of cultures living in harmony and thriving together.

The Leaf is a stunning showcase of our diversity, expressed through the plants that shape our lives here and across the globe. 

The Leaf will be a legacy for our city and our province, sharing experiences that explore the universal connection between people and plants. We are thrilled to share this spectacular, multi-seasonal oasis with our community later this year.

The Leaf will be the most visually stunning place of its kind in North America.
