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

The week will offer something for everyone, 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.

"We have several exciting programs happening in our parks all across the province," shared Nicky McLoughlin, manager of visitor experiences and public programming for Saskatchewan Provincial Parks. "At Moose Mountain, we have Learn to Paddle, Snails, Pails and Cattails, and at Buffalo Pound, we have a movie night and building fairy houses. At Echo Valley, we'll have some crafts and wayfinding demonstrations as well as geocaching." 

"We encourage all residents of Saskatchewan and visitors to our province to get out and see our parks and its natural beauty. The free programming offered is educational and it's a great way to connect with family and friends and enjoy what the province has to offer."

Kicking off Parks Week, visitors to provincial parks were encouraged to take advantage of the free fishing weekend that was on July 13 and 14. 

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.
