Heritage Resources

Part of the Assiniboine Park neighbourhood was part of the Town of Tuxedo when it became part of the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

The neighbourhood of Assiniboine Park is one of the most unique in Winnipeg as it consists of almost no residential component. It features Assiniboine Park in the north and the Assiniboine Forest south from Roblin Boulevard/Corydon Avenue. It also includes the Tuxedo Golf Course, an 18-hole course with clubhouse and the Canadian Mennonite University on its eastern border on Shaftsbury Boulevard.

The Park, one of oldest and most popular in Winnipeg, includes the Pavilion with its formal gardens and art gallery, a miniature train, English Gardens and other formal plantings, the Leo Mol Sculpture Gardens, the Winnipeg Zoo, the Lyric Theatre and the Conservatory.
