Zoo and Wildlife Attractions

Assiniboine Park Zoo

Your next visit to Manitoba should certainly include a day spent exploring Assiniboine Park Zoo. Of the many ways to enjoy a visit to Winnipeg with the whole family, taking in the sights and sounds at Assiniboine Park Zoo is one of the very best. You can find the Assiniboine Zoo southwest of downtown Winnipeg between the Assiniboine River and Roblin Drive. 

Opened in 1904, the Assiniboine Zoo is home to a number of different annual events, and features excellent exhibits and facilities. Be sure to check out Boo at the Zoo if your visit is over Halloween, while the Lights of the Wild event is a great way to celebrate Christmas at Assiniboine Park Zoo.

Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre

While visiting southern Manitoba, take time to explore the great outdoors. Visit the Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre north of Winnipeg to learn about the beautiful restored Oak Hammock Marsh and the animals that reside in it. In addition to the marsh, the Wildlife Management Area includes artesian springs, tall-grass prairie, aspen-oak bluff and waterfowl lure crops.

While at the marsh, keep a lookout for some of the three hundred species of birds, twenty-five species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and fish that live in the marsh. Enjoy hiking on the thirty kilometers of trails throughout the marsh or attend one of the several events, programs, workshops, eco-tours or camps held at the award-winning centre.
