July 15 to 21 is Saskatchewan Parks Week. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Parks Week in Saskatchewan. Every summer, a week is set aside to recognize our province’s parks. The week helps promote parks both nationally and within Saskatchewan.
“Saskatchewan’s parks grow stronger every year,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty says. “They are valuable tourist attractions that help move our economy forward and create a vibrant quality of life for residents and visitors. The fact that this is the 30th anniversary of our annual Parks Week reflects how important parks are to residents and visitors. Saskatchewan parks are beautiful places where people can unwind, socialize and explore the outdoors. They preserve our natural and cultural spaces so people can enjoy them for generations.”
Minister Doherty partnered with parks ministers across Canada to designate Saturday, July 21 as Canada’s Parks Day.
