Parks Week 2019 – So Much To Do In Saskatchewan’s Provincial Parks

Released on July 12, 2019


In celebration of Saskatchewan Parks Week from July 14 to 20, 2019, a variety of activities, events and contests are taking place all week long.

“This week will offer something for everyone,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “Whether you plan to take in a park for the very first time or you are an avid park user, a trip to one of our many Saskatchewan Provincial Parks will not disappoint.”

Kicking off Parks Week, visitors to provincial parks are encouraged to take advantage of the free fishing weekend on July 13 and 14.  The free fishing weekend is an opportunity to fish without purchasing an angling license.

During the month of July, Tourism Saskatchewan and Sask Parks will be giving away free fishing lures during Sask Parks programming at many provincial parks.  All summer long, recipients are encouraged to take a photo with their catch and new lure for a chance to win a prize!

Before the end of August, contest participants can submit their photos to the SaskParks Facebook page for their chance to win a $200 Cabela’s giftcard.

Saskatchewan Parks will be hosting a “Take a Hike” Challenge in all provincial parks on July 20, Canada Parks Day.  Participants are encouraged to track their steps using a pedometer and then submit a screenshot of their total steps to the SaskParks Facebook page for a chance to win one of three prize packs.

The Sask Parks Learn to Fish program is back by popular demand and offers an opportunity for new or interested anglers to learn the art of fishing from Jeff or Jason Matity, two local Saskatchewan fishing experts and hosts of Matity’s GetFishing.com and YouTube channel.  This program will be offered at Moose Mountain, Duck Mountain, Saskatchewan Landing and Buffalo Pound Provincial Parks.

New to Sask Parks this year, performer Terrance Littletent will perform in Meadow Lake Provincial Park during this week of celebration.  Terrance is an accomplished grass and hoop dancer and will be sharing his gift of dance, song and narrative during Parks Week and throughout the summer.

Returning to Sask Parks, Saskatchewan Express will be performing their timeline series “Reel Music”, a show packed with the most iconic soundtracks from Hollywood’s best films including Jaws, Titanic and A Star is Born.  During Parks Week, Saskatchewan Express will be performing in Cypress Hills, Good Spirit and Greenwater Provincial Parks.

For more information on activities in specific parks, visit www.saskparks.com.  To learn more about or to participate in the “Take a Hike” Challenge and to keep up to-date with activities and events, follow SaskParks on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/saskparks/.

Saskatchewan Provincial Park visitors are encouraged to use #saskparksweek when posting photos in parks during Parks Week.

The purchase of a Saskatchewan Provincial Parks Annual Permit is a great way to enjoy park activities and events all year round.
