Gumbo was enjoying a stroll in Winnipeg's largest park, Assiniboine Park. Established in 1904 the park covers 1100 acres (450 ha); almost half the park's design is styled after an English park (which is quite common in Canada).
Big congratulations to ace travel sleuth, PortMoresby, for figuring out this destination!
The building in our puzzle photo (with the tall tower) is the Pavilion, the signature building of the park. The current Pavilion is actually the second building on the site, the first being destroyed by fire in the 1920's. This current building is of Tudor style, including half timbering, with a prominent tower. Over the years the Pavilion has served as a gathering place, banquet and dance hall. Today, after a $5 million rehabilitation, it highlights an Art Gallery Museum featuring some of the province's most popular artists, and a 150 seat restaurant.
The highlighted photo of the Pavilion (at the top) was taken across the park's Duck Pond. In the summer it's filled with migratory ducks and geese and is a popular place for kids to feed old bread to the birds. In the winter it's a beautiful place to go ice-skating.
Immediately adjoining the Duck Pond is the park's English Garden, a lovely place to stroll and which leads to the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden. The park also has a fairly large and popular zoo focusing mostly on animals of Northern North America. Assiniboine park also has a great kid's playground, miniature train ride, a lovely conservatory, large fields for rugby, soccer and cricket, and much more. Well worth a day's visit (which I recommend you do in the summer).
Another travel question goes up tomorrow which I hope you find challenging!
