Looking for something to do, but have no spare cash on hand? Now there’s no reason not to go out and enjoy a day in the park.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the provincial park system, and on May 3rd B.C. Premier Christy Clark announced that parking will now be free in B.C.’s provincial parks.
“Our parks not only contribute to a healthy lifestyle and protect our environment, they are important to our economy. More park visitors mean more tourism dollars and more jobs for rural British Columbians and we want to eliminate any barriers to using the parks.”
However, municipal, regional or national parks in B.C. will continue to require users to pay to park, if that’s been their policy until now.
Provincial Parks in the Sea to Sky Corridor include:
- Porteau Cove
- Murrin Park
- Shannon Falls
- Stawamus Chief
- Garibaldi Provincial Park
- Alice Lake
- Brandywine Falls
- Nairn Falls
- Joffre Lakes
This is great news now that summer’s around the corner!
just one more reason to get out there and enjoy all that the Sea to Sky region has to offer! See you out there!
