'The Leaf' Opening Delayed

'The Leaf' Opening Delayed

WINNIPEG - A new indoor garden at Assiniboine Park won't open this year as planned.

The Leaf, the centrepiece of the park's upcoming Diversity Gardens, will feature plants from Manitoba and around the world.

According to Laura Cabak at the Assiniboine Park Conservancy, the pandemic has caused construction challenges, including the installation of translucent membranes for the roof.

She says due to the seasonal nature of some aspects of the project, the opening won't happen this year.
