Upgrades are coming to several provincial parks in the southeast region of Saskatchewan.
The provincial government made the announcement on Monday.
Upgrades scheduled for completion prior to the 2019 camping season in the southeast region include:
- New visitor reception centre, new full service campsites and a new potable water treatment system at Echo Valley Provincial Park;
- Campground electrical system upgrades and renovations to the historic stone retaining wall near the chalet building at Moose Mountain Provincial Park;
- Trailer sewage disposal expansion at Rowan’s Ravine Provincial Park; and
- Additional improvements to campsites, picnic tables, barbecues, trails, washrooms and other facilities, infrastructure and equipment throughout the southeast region.
Cost of these upgrade is $2 million which is in addition to more than $7.5 million invested in southeast parks over the past five years. Those include the formation of electric and full service campsites, new playground equipment and boat launch upgrades
“Our provincial parks are special places for many Saskatchewan families,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “Park facility and infrastructure updates are a priority, so that we can meet the changing needs of our park visitors and ensure everyone has enjoyable trips to the parks for years to come.”
