Manitoba's provincial parks will have free admission Friday through Sunday to celebrate the 27th annual Canada’s Parks Day celebrations.
“We know Manitobans love the outdoors and we encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to explore our great province,” Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox said Thursday in a news release. “Whether you’re planning a day trip to the beach or a longer vacation getaway, there is no shortage of familiar destinations and many new improvements just waiting in Manitoba parks and campgrounds.”
Visitors to provincial parks will not require park vehicle permits from Friday to Sunday, and, in addition to free entry, a number of special events, tours and activities have been planned, the minister said. However, nightly camping fees and fees in national parks will still apply.
Manitoba provincial parks offer numerous Parks Day-themed programs including campfire talks, guided walks and amphitheatre presentations. These programs are designed to showcase each park’s natural, cultural and historical resources. Information on interpretive programs for this weekend and the entire season can be found at: www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/parks/act_interp/events/events.html.
