Established in 1904, Assiniboine Park is a 300-acre green space located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, complete with a sculpture garden, outdoor theater, pavilion, conservatory and zoo. In 2012, the Assiniboine Park Zoo launched one of its largest initiatives: Journey to Churchill. A signature exhibit aimed at issues related to climate change, the protection of northern species and home to the Zoo’s newest attraction – Hudson the Polar Bear.
To promote all of the Park and Zoo attractions, a new App was published with maps, events, news feeds and a donation portal. In addition, to give users a sneak peak of the Journey to Churchill exhibit before it opens, an augmented reality 3D tour was created with target images spread through the Park, on location at the Zoo or available for download online.
