Remembrance Week

Remembrance Week at the Zoo | November 11 - 18

In the spirit of remembrance, the Assiniboine Park Zoo is pleased to recognize all veterans, military personnel and their immediate families by offering them free admission from Saturday, November 11
to Saturday, November 18, 2017. To receive free admission, complimentary tickets must be obtained at the Zoo entrance and identification is required. 

While at the Zoo, visitors are encouraged to see Juno, a polar bear cub visiting from the Toronto Zoo for a limited time. Juno is the little sister of Hudson and was born on November 11, 2015. The timing of Juno’s birthday and her namesake are of special significance to the Canadian Armed Forces. It is a name that marks a great moment in Canadian history commemorating the landing of Canadian troops on Juno beach during the Second World War.

Assiniboine Park Zoo also participates in the Canadian Forces Appreciation program. See our Hours + Rates page for more information.
