Nestled in the very heart of the city along the shores of the Assiniboine River, Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park has been a central gathering space for citizens and visitors to the city for more than a century.
More than five million visitors every year visit the Park to connect with nature, engage with wildlife, take in art and entertainment, and pursue physical activity. The Park is home to popular attractions like the Assiniboine Park Zoo, Nature Playground, Qualico Family Centre, Lyric Theatre, The Pavilion, the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden and the newly opened Canada Diversity Gardens which uses plants as a medium to tell the story of the cultural relationships between our country’s citizens and plant life. The Assiniboine Park Zoo, home to more than 170 animal species, provides visitors with unique opportunities to observe the animals and natural beauty of Manitoba’s north.
Through its Group companies, Great-West Lifeco and IGM Financial, Power Corporation has a long and proud history with the City of Winnipeg. The Assiniboine Park is an urban gem and a cultural touchstone for the city and its residents.
