Investments In Southern Saskatchewan Provincial Parks

Released on August 12, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing nearly $8 million for facility and infrastructure improvements in southern provincial parks in 2020-21.  A total investment of more than $14.6 million will be made across Saskatchewan’s provincial parks system this year.

“Whether visiting for a day or a week, there is always so much to see and do in our beautiful parks,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “With nearly four million visits to our parks in 2019, investing in facility and infrastructure continues to be a priority.  Upgrades and improvements will ensure our parks remain safe and enjoyable spaces for our visitors in the years to come.”

Along with ongoing improvements to washrooms, docks, day-use facilities and signage, upgrades scheduled for completion prior to the 2021 camping season in southern Saskatchewan provincial parks include:

  • Pool building interior upgrades at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park;
  • Campground electrical upgrades, a new campground service centre and water system improvements at Good Spirit Lake Provincial Park;
  • Shoreline protection at Rowan’s Ravine Provincial Park;
  • A new campground service centre at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park; and
  • Boat launch upgrades at Moose Mountain Provincial Park.

Upgrades that began in 2019-20 and are now complete in southern Saskatchewan provincial parks include:

  • Swimming pool and related facility replacement at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park;
  • Campground service centre replacement at Danielson Provincial Park and service centre upgrade at Douglas Provincial Park;
  • Campground electrical upgrades at Saskatchewan Landing;
  • Road improvements at Moose Mountain Provincial Park;
  • Boat launch upgrades at Crooked Lake Provincial Park; and
  • Shoreline protection at Elbow Harbour Recreation Site.

From 2007-08 to 2019-20, capital investment and capital maintenance in parks reached a total value of more than $127 million.  Improvements planned for 2020-21 will further increase the total investment to more than $141 million since 2007.  Saskatchewan’s provincial parks continue to be an important destination, attracting visitors and bringing economic benefits to the province.
