One of the most popular parks in Winnipeg, Assiniboine Park offers everything from zoo animals to playground equipment for a fun and exciting day in the heart of nature. Catch a ride on the miniature train; take photos with costumed cartoons dancing down the walkways; run alongside the lion cages or stand perfectly still to be showered with butterflies in the butterfly garden. Once you and your kids are all tuckered out, enjoy a delicious ice cream cone from the cafe and wander through the roses of the English gardens as the stars emerge.
Winter Fun in Winnipeg
If you’re traveling to Winnipeg to the winter, don’t worry: There are plenty of attractions that are even more fun when the rest of the city shuts down, like the Forks National Historic Site. At 9.34km, it contains the longest all-natural ice skating trail in the world, and thousands of visitors each year fly to Winnipeg to enjoy its smooth surfaces and snowy banks. There are also a large number of shops, restaurants and warmly-heated cafes lining the trail, so if you get too cold after your triple axels, just hop off the ice and follow the lights for a hot drink or a cozy cup of cocoa.

You’ll want to start with the dome, of course, an eye-popping 3D extravaganza that will send you flying through the universe without ever leaving your seat. Once you’ve traveled through Orion and Hercules, check out a musical laser show or press your eye to one of the museum’s many telescopes. You might also get the itch to play with hands-on science exhibits focused on engineering, astronomy and biology. As an educational and entertaining trip, this museum will offer family-friendly fun for kids and parents of all ages.
Old Market Square
You’ll need souvenirs before you head back home, and Old Market Square is the place to find them. It’s one of the more hopping neighborhoods in Winnipeg, with a wide variety of stores, galleries, and eateries beckoning you from a hundred colorful doorways, so expect to lose an afternoon here at the very least. Go shopping and socializing in the boutiques; explore the red brick buildings of the historic district; enjoy a fine lunch while you people-watch through snow-tinted windows. Visit the square during summertime and you might even catch a free outdoor concert or a live performance of circus jugglers!
