About the Park

Nestled in the heart of Winnipeg, Assiniboine Park is the perfect place to relax and play year-round with attractions that blend the best of physical activity, sight-seeing, dining and wildlife into one unforgettable experience. Take a walk through the gardens, grab a bite to eat at the Park Cafe or catch some live music at the Lyric Theatre - Assiniboine Park is a vibrant world of activity every day of every season.

 

The Assiniboine Park Conservancy


Assiniboine Park entered a new era in 2008 with the establishment of the Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC), a private/public, not-for-profit, charitable organization with a mandate to develop, govern and manage the overall Park and its amenities. APC has a 50-year lease with the City of Winnipeg, which owns the property and assets.
 
The last significant capital investment in Assiniboine Park by the City of Winnipeg was over 40 years ago. Refurbishment of the Pavilion and the creation of the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden (all three phases) were undertaken by the private sector based on the need and opportunity that presented itself. Faced with aging facilities and the growing challenge of maintaining them, APC was charged with the task of charting a course for the future of the Park and all of its entities that would ensure its long-term viability.
 
The creation of the Park was a visionary and bold move on the part of the City Council of the day. Protecting, enhancing and redeveloping it for the next century will require the same kind of leadership and acumen.
