English Garden at Assiniboine Park
300 Assiniboine Park Drive
Winnipeg, MB R3P 2N7
The winding paths and free-form beds of the English Garden are a feast for the senses in every season. The flowing layout is indicative of the English Landscape style, which sought to convey an idealized but approachable view of nature, as opposed to the regimented symmetry of the Formal Garden. One of the most notable statues in the English Garden, the Boy with the Boot was donated to the Park by the Winnipeg Downtown Rotary Club. The English Garden is now planted mainly with annual flowers but a program is underway to revitalize this historic garden to restore it and its original design intent.
