Assiniboine Park Booking ‘abruptly increasing’ following restrictions have increased


Winnipeggers are roaming in parks across the city, with strict restrictions on all indoor ceremonies due to novel coronoviruses.

The 20C weather with new restrictions means bookings are quickly becoming a hot commodity at Asinbayne Park.

“When new public health restrictions were announced [last week]”We saw a sudden increase in volume in terms of picnic site booking requests,” says Laura Cabak, the park’s communications manager.

As of May 1, picnic spots in Assinbioin can be reserved in four hours time.

Empty sites are still available for drop-in use.

A site’s price tag rings in at $ 50 and Cabac says they are selling faster than any year in recent memory.

“Currently, we’re pretty much booked for the weekend in late May,” she says.

“We have a lot of availability during June on weekdays and June is still quite open at this time.”

After booking the site online, you will have to wait for a phone call from the staff at the park to confirm your reservation.
