Most Provincial Parks Opening Friday

Nearly all provincial day-use parks and several camping parks are set to open Friday, May 18.

“Nova Scotians and visitors can explore nature and spend quality time with their friends and families when they visit a provincial park,” said Natural Resources Minister Margaret Miller. “We invite everyone to enjoy camping, swimming, paddling, geocaching or other activities this season.”

The rest of the camping parks, as well as their day-use areas, will open in early June. Park users can check the provincial parks’ website for opening dates.

Reservations for camping sites can be made by phone, toll free, at 1-888-544-3434 or online at, http://parks.novascotia.ca.

Camping parks had a successful 2017 season with a 13 per cent increase in bookings over the previous year.

This season will offer innovative programming to help Nova Scotians explore parks and discover camping, including the return of the Grade 4s Outdoors and the Learn to Camp programs. More recreational and interpretive park events set for the 2018 season can be found at, http://parks.novascotia.ca.

More than a million people visit Nova Scotia’s provincial beaches and parks each year.
