Zoo's & Public Farms

Embrace your animal nature at Assiniboine Park Zoo, home to more than 200 species and 2,000-plus individual residents. Come face to face with a menagerie of cuddly critters and exotic beasts—everything from lions, tigers, zebras and kangaroos to cold-climate mainstays like caribou, bison and polar bears.

Stop in at the Journey to Churchill and watch polar bears swim overhead in the Sea Ice Passage, an underwater viewing tunnel running through the Gateway to the Arctic. Be sure to visit the International Polar Bear Conservation Centre, a world-class research facility and interpretive gallery that teaches visitors about Arctic ecosystems. Or visit the Polar Playground for climbing, sliding, exploring fun!
