People will get a chance to explore Ontario Parks for free this Friday.
Many parks, including Algonquin, are celebrating Healthy Parks Healthy People Day. Parks Ontario is offering free daily vehicle permits for July 15th. They say their parks will be very busy that day, so they are urging people to book online.
In Algonquin Park, a number of events are going on that day, including free canoe, kayak and paddleboard rentals, interactive art shows and trivia. There will also be Bear Wise training at select campgrounds to allow park-goers to learn how to make their campsite safe from bears.
Parks Ontario is also offering several events at select parks across the province. To find out what your park is offering, click here.
