Enjoy free access to all provincial parks this weekend as part of the annual Canada’s Parks Day celebrations across the country.
“Right across our province, our parks are full of natural beauty and recreation opportunities,” Minister Squires said in a release. “Whether you want to get away from it all and immerse yourself in nature, take a hike, or enjoy outdoor activities, I encourage everyone to take a moment and enjoy all that our parks have to offer.”
Visitors to provincial parks will not require park vehicle permits from July 20 to 22. Nightly camping fees and fees in national parks still apply.
Manitoba’s provincial parks offer numerous interpretive programs including guided experiences and tours, campfire talks and amphitheatre presentations designed to connect visitors to each park’s natural, cultural and historical resources.
Several campgrounds also have special Parks Day-themed celebrations planned. Information on Parks Day events is available at park and campground offices and online at www.manitobaparks.com.
