Assiniboine Park is closing its Pavilion temporarily to carry out renovations beginning February 1.
The third floor gallery will be completely renovated over the next several months, as well as minor renovations taking place on the second floor galleries, the main floor restaurant and event space.
“The Pavilion is a treasured, iconic building in Winnipeg and these upgrades will ensure that it can continue to serve its role in Assiniboine Park for many years to come,” said Don Peterkin, COO of the Assiniboine Park Conservancy. “By closing the galleries to the public, it will allow us to complete the renovations within a few months and have the building re-opened in time for the busy summer season.”
New roofing, upgraded mechanical systems and insulation will be installed throughout the facility as well as other life-cycle upgrades.
Renovations are expected to be complete in late spring. The visitor services area and restrooms on the main floor will remain open for public use during construction.
