ROWAN'S RAVINE PROVINCIAL PARK CELEBRATES SASKATCHEWAN CENTENNIAL
During centennial celebrations at Rowan's Ravine Provincial Park, a Centenary plaque was unveiled to recognize the province's $236,000 investment in the park. Centenary funds were used to replace the bath change house and repair the marina.
"We are pleased and proud to dedicate these facilities to the people of Saskatchewan. These improvements will ensure park visitors will experience a safe and enjoyable park visit," Environment Minister David Forbes said. "We can look back on Saskatchewan's past with pride and a sense of accomplishment and forward with confidence and optimism for what the future holds for our province and our people."
Through the four-year, $120 million Centenary Fund program, the parks program received $6.8 million to complete important capital projects for Saskatchewan's centennial.
Saskatchewan's Provincial Parks celebrate our diverse natural and cultural heritage and are an important legacy for future generations. Each park highlights specific natural or historic features and offers a range of recreational and educational opportunities.
Throughout the centennial year, Saskatchewan will continue to host a variety of special events and initiatives in celebration of the province's centennial. Check out the special centennial section at www.saskparks.net for additional centennial events.
