Noooo… not another one. It’s been around since I’ve been a Winnipegger, but The Assiniboine Park Conservatory will be closing its doors for good April 2. The conservancy said the closure is “the necessary next step in the journey of bringing Canada’s Diversity Gardens to life” which will cost $75 million to build.
The conservatory, which is home to a tropical garden, first opened in 1914 and the park said its past its life span. Demolition will start in the spring and when it’s done construction of support green houses for the diversity gardens will begin. The gardens are currently under construction in the southeast corner of Assiniboine park.
