Saskatchewan Parks Week Offers Opportunities to Explore the Province’s Great Outdoors

Saskatchewan’s (Canada) picturesque provincial parks are ready to welcome locals and tourists alike for the official Parks Week, announced from July 9 to 15 by the Government of Saskatchewan. 

This initiative, designed to inspire visitors to explore and immerse themselves in Saskatchewan’s diverse landscapes, holds promise for both public and private outdoor recreation operators.

Laura Ross, the Parks, Culture and Sport Minister, encourages everyone to experience the province’s natural bounty. 

“From forests to grasslands, to sand dunes, the diversity of Saskatchewan’s landscapes and parks often surprises visitors,” Ross said. 

“With exciting programs and events, Parks Week is a great time to explore and celebrate all the beauty our province has to offer.”

Private campground owners and operators play a significant role in the outdoor recreation industry in Saskatchewan, which contributes substantially to the province’s economy. 

This celebration is a golden chance for them to showcase their offerings, enhance visitor experiences, and foster lasting connections with nature enthusiasts. Parks Week promises to generate increased visitor traffic, boosting local businesses and the provincial economy.

The week is laden with activities for every preference. Whether you’re a fan of hiking, fishing, or watersports, or prefer a tranquil day at the beach, Saskatchewan’s Parks Week has got you covered. 

Unique events are scheduled across the province, including a Movie Night at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park, a Teddy Bear Picnic at Candle Lake, and Trade Days at Fort Carlton Historic Provincial Park, among others. 

Furthermore, the SaskExpress tour will make special stops at various provincial parks, adding a unique flair to the week’s festivities.

On July 15, Saskatchewan joins the rest of Canada to celebrate Parks Day with family-friendly events and theme days at numerous provincial parks. 

These activities range from guided hikes and sandcastle-building contests to camping-themed crafts and scavenger hunts, ensuring fun-filled experiences for all ages.

The Parks Week initiative also offers Discovery Packs for those who prefer self-guided activities. 

These kits, available at park visitor centers, provide everything needed for crafts, park exploration, or science experiments. As an additional resource, visitors can pick up the “Summer Fun in Sask Parks” activity booklet to guide their adventures.

Campers can also enjoy a 25% discount on nightly electric campsites from Monday to Thursday at Buffalo Pound and Blackstrap Provincial Parks. 

Such initiatives are expected to promote overnight camping, further contributing to the vibrancy of the outdoor recreation industry in Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan’s Parks Week offers a compelling opportunity for private campground owners, operators, and the outdoor recreation industry at large to flourish while promoting the province’s enchanting natural landscapes.
