The Government of Saskatchewan is investing more than $6.7 million for facility and infrastructure improvements in central and northern provincial parks in 2020-21. A total investment of $14.6 million will be made across Saskatchewan’s provincial parks system this year.

“As provincial parks continue to be popular vacation destinations for Saskatchewan families, maintaining and improving our parks is an ongoing priority for our government,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “Each year, millions of dollars are invested into our park facilities and infrastructure to ensure visitors can enjoy access to modern and safe amenities while spending time in provincial parks.”

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

  • Campground service centre replacement at Pike Lake Provincial Park;
  • Water system upgrades at Meadow Lake Provincial Park;
  • Boat launch upgrades at Great Blue Heron Provincial Park and Meadow Lake Provincial Park;
  • Road improvements and electrical upgrades at Candle Lake Provincial Park; and
  • Sewage lagoon upgrade and expansion at Duck Mountain Provincial Park.

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

  • New visitor reception centre at Candle Lake Provincial Park;
  • Campground electrical upgrades at Meadow Lake Provincial Park and Pike Lake Provincial Park;
  • Trail system upgrades at Meadow Lake Provincial Park and Lac La Ronge Provincial Park;
  • New play structure with accessible features at Great Blue Heron Provincial Park;
  • Water system upgrade at the Battlefords Provincial Park; and
  • Sewage lagoon upgrade at Lac La Ronge Provincial Park.

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.
