Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park and the Winter Landscape

Assiniboine Park in West Winnipeg, a large picturesque urban park, designed in the English Landscape style.  Parks in London and New York’s famed Central Park also incorporate this style.   The Park was incorporated well over a century ago.   Plans are in place for much needed capital improvements, amounting to 180 million dollars.   Recent neglect and pressure from the city’s main downtown park at The Forks have left it needing some TLC.
