How cool is this?!
Looks like Winnipeg’s award-winning Assiniboine Park is getting something called The Leaf, a massive biodome garden that could become the latest tourist draw, as well as yet another feature that will draw new residents to our city.
As the Globe & Mail story says, “The city’s historic Assiniboine Park is also the site of what may one day stand as the prairie city’s greatest attraction: Canada’s Diversity Gardens, a 35-acre biodome that Winnipeggers hope will one day earn the city world renown. The new conservatory is already under construction and is set to open in the summer of 2020. The $75-million project is part of what some see as a ‘continuing renaissance’ for the city, a renewed confidence in the idea of Winnipeg as one of the most populous, robust cities in Canada.”
