Over the September long weekend (Sept 1-4, 2017), you don’t need a park pass to visit any of the provincial parks in Manitoba. In addition to that, because of Canada 150, you also don’t require a National Parks pass this year to visit any of the National Parks in our Province (which consist of Riding Mountain National Park and Wapusk National Park).
This weekend will be a great weekend to get out and explore some of the beautiful parks and areas in Manitoba! Other than the slight possibility of a thunderstorm and showers Friday night, it looks like the weather forecast (for now anyway – we know how quickly those can change! haha) is fantastic for the weekend! We hope that you all have a safe and fun Sept long!

We have a few more that we may be adding before the weekend, or over the early part of the weekend as well, before we head out exploring some new spots too!
We have one simple request if you are out enjoying the beautiful sights and places that Manitoba has to offer – PLEASE do not litter. Please pack out what you pack in, and for extra bonus “You’re totally awesome!!” points, carry out some extra garbage that you may see on your adventures. Thank you!
