$500,000 FOR SASKATCHEWAN REGIONAL PARKS ASSOCIATION

The Saskatchewan Regional Parks Association has received $500,000 from the

centenary fund for the 2000/01 year.



This money, which will be administered by the Saskatchewan Regional Parks

Association, will be available to its member parks to help improve

infrastructure throughout the Regional Parks System. Projects under

consideration include campground electrification, golf course improvements and

upgrades to swimming pools and playground equipment.



Approved projects will also receive matching funding or other inkind

contributions from local communities.



"The 101 regional parks provide a wide variety of recreation opportunities to

the people of this province," Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management

Minister Buckley Belanger said. "Centenary funds will provide renewed

infrastructure within the regional parks system in anticipation and celebration

of this province's Centennial in 2005."



Saskatchewan Regional Parks Association President, Ed Roncin stated, "The

association and its member parks are extremely pleased with this grant. It

will enable us to fund facility and infrastructure upgrades in conjunction with

our members and their sponsoring municipalities."



The money for these projects comes from the province's four-year, $120 million

Centenary Fund.
