The Leaf

Located in Assiniboine Park, The Leaf is a spectacular indoor horticultural attraction where visitors journey through four distinct biomes: the Hartley and Heather Richardson Tropical Biome, Mediterranean Biome, Babs Asper Display House, and the Shirley Richardson Butterfly Garden.

At the Leaf, visitors experience a stunning showcase of natural diversity expressed through plants that shape our lives here in Manitoba and across the globe, including towering palms, aromatic flowers, stunning succulents, and more. Canada’s largest indoor waterfall helps create a humid, warm environment in the Hartley and Heather Richardson Tropical Biome. The indoor biomes at The Leaf are open year-round and accessed with paid admission.

The Leaf is surrounded by approximately 30 acres of public gardens and greenspace – known collectively as the Gardens at The Leaf – that evolve and change with the seasons. The Gardens at The Leaf are open year-round and do not require an admission ticket.

The Leaf is also home to private event spaces, a coffee bar, a small retail shop selling unique, handmade items, and a classroom that hosts programs and workshops to help people of all ages connect with plants and nature.

Finish your visit by gathering for a meal inspired by global cuisine. Gather Craft Kitchen & Bar, located in The Leaf, explores food from across cultures, incorporating fresh, locally-sourced, and seasonal ingredients from our gardens.

Tickets to visit the indoor biomes at The Leaf are date and time specific. Please purchase tickets online in advance to ensure availability.
