Northern Explorer Month

Assiniboine Park Zoo is celebrating winter in a whole new way with Northern Explorer Month from Saturday January 31 to Sunday March 1!

Visitors who pay for one regular priced admission can then use the same ticket to return to the Zoo as many times as they like for the remainder of the month.

In keeping with the theme, children can go on a Northern Explorer Expedition. Pick up your guide at the Zoo entrance. Visit at least five of the cool spots shown on the expedition map and earn a special Norther Explorer temporary tattoo!

Construction at the Zoo

Site improvements at the Zoo will continue in 2015 as part of the Assiniboine Park Conservancy’s $200 million redevelopment. Most notably, the McFeetors Heavy Horse Centre is currently under construction at the north end of the Zoo and scheduled to this summer. Visitors may notice changes and  experience minor construction detours as they navigate their way through the Zoo’s 80 park-like acres.

With the completion of the new Journey to Churchill exhibit, Assiniboine Park Zoo offers an all new experience to its visitors. As we continue to upgrade our exhibits and amenities, we will make every effort to minimize the impact of construction and maximize your enjoyment of the Zoo.

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue on this journey to excellence. Visit www.imagineaplace.ca to learn more about this exciting transformation and how you can help make it happen!
