Such water system upgrades are expected to be completed in 2020.

The announcement regarding the nearby park was part of a larger announcement concerning other upgrades to northern Saskatchewan provincial parks.

Other upgrades include a new visitor centre at Candle Lake Provincial Park, electrical service expansion at Matheson Campground at Meadow Lake Provincial Park, and an expansion to the sewage lagoon at Lac La Ronge Provincial Park.

Total expenditures for facility and infrastructure improvements in parks in the northern part of the province are $3.3 million.

“The parks in northern Saskatchewan are hidden gems, each offering a unique experience that one may not expect on the prairies,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.
