Manitobans will be able to enjoy access to the province’s provincial parks for free throughout February.

Environment, Climate and Parks Minister Jeff Wharton announced the free admission in a statement Monday, saying it would allow the public to take advantage of winter activities offered in the parks, starting Tuesday.

“Free park entry gives everyone more opportunities to enjoy nature and the great outdoors,” said Wharton.

“People across our province love Manitoba’s parks, and our government is pleased to make it easier to explore them and to experience all that they offer.”

While Manitobans won’t have to have a valid vehicle permit during the month, if they want to snowmobile on any park trails they will still need a Snowpass (via MPI brokers). Annual park vehicle permits go on sale March 1.

During winter months, some parks offer groomed cross-country ski trails, outdoor skating rinks and toboggan hills, while others have interpreters offering guided experiences, including wolf howl hikes, snowshoe treks, quinzhee building and ice fishing.

The free month does not apply to national parks.
