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. Investments in preservation, rehabilitation, and restoration of our national historic sites will protect our heritage and strengthen their appeal as destinations to celebrate our nation's achievements.
When visiting Klondike National Historic Sites you may encounter reduced services while we complete this important work. Please consult the following list of current infrastructure projects in Klondike National Historic Sites for 2018 to see if any facility work might impact your visit.
This summer the fire suppression system aboard the Keno will be upgraded to meet current fire codes. In order to ensure the safety of visitors no access to the boat will be permitted while this work is underway.
Until construction begins, the Keno is open for free to visitors between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Come and engage with our knowledgeable Parks Canada interpreter on site! The Keno will be closed for the remainder of the 2018 season starting July 5, 2018, due to construction related to the fire suppression upgrades.
Dredge No. 4
Following extensive rehabilitation work to the bow of the dredge completed last summer, a temporary roof will be installed over the rest of the structure this summer to keep snow-melt and rainwater from getting into the vessel. This will protect the Dredge while a structural assessment is done to determine additional work required for the long term stabilization of the structure.
