Make their Wildest Dreams come true.

With over 5 million unique visits each year, Assiniboine Park is one of the most frequently visited attractions in Manitoba. The Park and Zoo are common ground for people from all walks of life and an outdoor experience like no other! Unfortunately, due to financial barriers, some segments of our community are unable to experience all the wonders of Assiniboine Park and Zoo. 

The Wildest Dreams program is an initiative designed to make Park and Zoo programming, admissions, and transportation more accessible for school groups in Winnipeg and the surrounding area. Throughout the months of July and August, the Wildest Dreams Campaign raises funds that help bring children who experience socio-economic barriers  to participate in year-round activities at the Park and Zoo. 

The Assiniboine Park Conservancy also hosts an annual Wildest Dreams event, which provides a once-in-a-lifetime Zoo experience for children and  families facing health and/or socio-economic challenges. We partner with local not-for-profit organizations to identify children and families who would benefit most from attending this event. From the moment our 1,500 guests walk through our doors, they are treated to an evening of activities and special memories beyond an everyday Zoo visit.

Thank you to our amazing partners! It is only with the support of our the community that we can bring these initiatives to life!
