Capital Upgrades

Between 2007/08 and 2015/16, the Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than 90 million dollars in capital construction and facility improvements to provincial parks. The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport has undertaken many major projects, including building new campgrounds, replacing services centres, enhancing campsite services and fixtures and upgrades to road, sewer and water system. In addition, many smaller projects like boat launch upgrades, campsite enlargements, trail renewal and cultural facility enhancements have also been completed. These improvements and upgrades help to enhance the overall visitor experience and are part of what makes the Saskatchewan provincial park system such a popular destination.
