MOOSE MOUNTAIN CHALET SLATED FOR RESTORATION
The chalet at Moose Mountain Provincial Park is getting a facelift.
The restoration project will involve work on the interior and exterior of the
building and also landscaping around the building area. All work will be done
in keeping with the heritage character of the building. Total cost of this
project, which is expected to be completed late in the new year, is $600,000.
"We are pleased to be able to restore this historic building which has become a
significant landmark not only at Moose Mountain, but also in the province,"
Environment and Resource Management Minister Buckley Belanger said. "The
restoration will ensure this building is around for all park visitors to enjoy
now and into the future."
The Moose Mountain Chalet, which was originally built in 1931/32, houses the
visitor centre and park offices.
The money for this project comes from the province's four-year, $120 million
This funding supplements current provincial parks infrastructure spending of
$2.5 million per year. The Centenary Fund was developed so important capital
projects can be completed as Saskatchewan approaches its centennial in 2005.
