Free entry to provincial parks during Labour Day long weekend

Posted on: September 2, 2016  |  

The provincial government is once again offering free entry to provincial parks during the Labour Day long weekend.

Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox made the announcement Thursday.

“We encourage Manitobans to take the opportunity to enjoy all that our provincial parks have to offer,” Cox said in a news release.

“Late summer is the perfect time to enjoy cooler evenings, comfortable sleeping and the chance to create memories by the campfire.”

The province said park vehicle permits are not required in provincial parks from Friday to Monday, but regular camping and entrance fees to national parks still apply.

There will also be special interpretive programming this weekend, like back-country caravan tours to the bowl-shaped valley in Spruce Woods Provincial Park and guided tours of historic houses at St. Norbert Provincial Park.

The Whiteshell Fish Hatchery is open on the long weekend, and the Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary Visitor Centre is open this weekend to Thanksgiving.

Several provincial park campsites, cabins and yurts will stay open through the fall, as well.

Reservation information can be found at http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/parks/
