Due to the success of last year’s initiative, the Manitoba (Canada) government is once again offering free entrance to provincial parks for an entire week in mid-July, including Canada’s Parks Day weekend.

“This week-long free access, which coincides with Canada’s Parks Day on Saturday, July 16, is designed to ensure all Manitobans can enjoy the extraordinary natural beauty of our provincial parks even more affordably,” said Environment, Climate, and Parks Minister Jeff Wharton.

“From hiking and birdwatching in lush boreal forests to exploring intriguing historic sites that showcase our province’s cultural heritage to paddling a pristine, tranquil lake, Manitoba’s provincial parks have something for everyone.”

Vehicle permits will not be required at any provincial park from July 11-17. Overnight camping fees will still apply along with fees to national parks.

Many parks offer special events on Saturday, July 16, to celebrate Canada’s Parks Day, including fun activities, barbeques, and prize draws. Event details are available at local campground offices and online at www.manitobaparks.com.

Campers looking for a spot to camp are advised to check site availability and make a reservation through the Parks Reservation Service at www.manitobaparks.com or by calling 1-888-482-2267.

Beach users are reminded to be water smart this summer, which includes never swimming alone and supervising children on the beach.
