Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Ken Cheveldayoff was at Pike Lake Provincial Park today to announce an investment of more than $240,000 to upgrade the very popular Pike Lake swimming pool and waterslide. Completion of this work will address the current safety concerns and extend the useful life of the waterslide.
“Provincial parks are an important part of Saskatchewan’s quality of life and are more popular than ever,” Cheveldayoff said. “Projects like these help to ensure that everyone who visits our parks have a great experience.”
The swimming pool and waterslide facility located at Pike Lake Provincial Park was constructed in 1986 and is a favourite attraction for park visitors. The facility consists of a swimming pool, waterslide, access-tower, and a service building. These upgrades will ensure the facility remains in good condition and available for the public to enjoy for many years to come.
Repairs of the waterslide access-tower and supports will take place in the fall of 2017 and visitors are still welcome to enjoy its offerings this summer. A second phase of construction is planned for 2018-19 and will involve other repairs to finalize this project.
This summer, in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Saskatchewan provincial parks will be offering free entry on Canada Day, July 1 and Canada’s Parks Day, July 15. Pike Lake Provincial Park along with many other parks will be hosting special events and activities. For updated listings, visit www.saskparks.com.
