Parks Canada’s Infrastructure Program
What to know before you visit
Parks Canada is investing an unprecedented $3 billion dollars over 5 years to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. These investments represent the largest federal infrastructure plan in the history of Parks Canada.
Investments in visitor infrastructure – such as trails, visitor centres and campgrounds, as well as highways, parkways and bridges – will ensure the quality and reliability of visitor facilities and continue to allow Canadians to connect with nature.
When visiting or driving through Riding Mountain National Park on Highway 10, you may encounter one or more construction zones while we complete this important work. Please plan ahead before you travel to avoid inconvenience.
