Winnipeggers looking to enjoy a day at The Nature Playground in Winnipeg will have to go elsewhere.

The Assiniboine Park Conservancy announced Monday that the Nature Playground is closed as it receives some much needed updates.

"Since May 2011, the Nature Playground has been a popular gathering place for children and families, but after 13 years, it’s time for a refresh," said Assiniboine Park and Zoo in a post on social media. "This spring, the Nature Playground will be temporarily closed while we complete a number of projects."

With hundreds of people using the playground regularly, many of the structures at the park had experienced plenty of wear and tear.

The Nature Playground is expected to reopen in mid-June.
