The conservatory, which park officials say is the first memory many people have of Assiniboine Park, will shut down for good after Easter Monday, April 2 at 5 p.m. It first opened in 1914 when many North American cities were constructing indoor tropical gardens, and was rebuilt in 1968. It will make way for the Canada's Diversity Gardens, a horticulture display several times its size and bigger in scope with its theme of cultural and plant diversity.</p>
