The Saskatchewan government has announced capital investment in provincial park upgrades in 2018-19 including a water treatment plant for Battlefords Provincial Park.
Construction of a new water treatment plant is scheduled for completion in 2019.
A new digital messaging sign has also been installed in this area to communicate important information to park visitors.
Those upgrades are included in $3.6 million being directed to park improvements in the Northwest.
Other upgrades are being completed in Meadow Lake Provincial Park, including:
• Two new service centres and major road improvements at Kimball Lake and Greig Lake campgrounds;
• Boat launch improvements and a parking lot expansion at the Greig Lake boat launch and roof repairs at the Greig Lake interpretive centre;
• Electrical upgrades and an expansion at the Murray Doell Campground; and
• Major upgrades to the wastewater system at Kimball Campground.
“Our facilities and infrastructure are an important part of our visitor’s overall park experience,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.
“In the Northwest region, the improvements being made will help ensure park safety, increase accessibility and convenience, while continuing to make our parks enjoyable places for families.”
A total of $11 million is being directed to park improvements in 2018-19.
