Zoo Annual Closing for Cleaning & Small Repairs

Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – The Assiniboine Park Zoo will be closed to the public from Monday, January 6 through to Sunday, January 12, 2020.

The Conservancy staff will take the time to complete minor repairs, deep cleaning, and building refreshes throughout the property.

The Zoo will re-open at 9AM on Monday, January 13, 2020.

“This annual closure provides us with an excellent opportunity to complete a sizable amount of work during a relatively short period of time without impacting the visitor experience,” said Archie Pronger, VP of Operations. “It has worked well the past two years, so we decided to move forward with a similar plan this year to make some general improvements throughout the property.”

Work planned includes minor repairs, painting, and deep cleaning in buildings throughout the Zoo. Visitor Services in the Zoo entrance, retail and food and beverage operations within the Zoo will also be closed during this time.

Visitor Services will be open at The Pavilion from 9AM to 4PM during this time and can be reached by email at info@assiniboinepark.ca or by phone at 204-927-6000.
