Churchill exhibit opens, Zoo rates rise July 3

  • Print

The Journey to Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo will open to the public on Thursday, July  3 — following a 10-day closure of the entire zoo to prepare for the opening — the Assiniboine Park Conservancy said in a statement this week.

The new, 10-acre exhibit will be home to polar bear, arctic fox, muskox, snowy owl and seal habitats, as well as interactive components, underwater viewing tunnels and an eight-minute film experience in a 360-degree theatre.

The Zoo’s new South Gate entrance building on Roblin Boulevard will also open on July 3 and new, increased entry fees will go into effect on that date in order to make the zoo’s rates "comparable or less than most major zoos in North America," APC president and chief executive officer Margaret Redmond said.

The new rate structure, effective July 3, 2014, is as follows:
• Adults — $18.50 ($10 Tues.);
• Seniors (60+) — $14.81 ($10 Tues.);
• Youth (13-17) — $14.81 ($10 Tues.);
• Children (3-12) $10 ($10 Tues.);
• Under 3 — free.

Assiniboine Park Zoo members receive unlimited free admissions as well as a number of discounts. For full information on zoo membership, see assiniboinepark.ca
