REGINA – The Saskatchewan Library Association (SLA) is teaming up with the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) and the Saskatchewan Regional Parks Association (SRPA) to lend free passes to regional parks this summer.
From June 1 to Sept. 15, the program will reduce barriers to participation and inspire people to get out, travel the province and enjoy the rejuvenating properties of nature, according to SPRA. Anyone with a valid Saskatchewan library card can visit a participating library and borrow a pass allowing free access to nearly 100 regional parks.
Eight hundred passes are available and will be distributed to branches of participating regional libraries. Confirmed libraries include the Palliser Regional Library, Southeast Regional Library, Wheatland Regional Library and the Pahkisimon Nuyeʔáh Library System. More will be announced in the coming weeks.
Saskatchewan’s regional parks span the province and offering scenic hikes, lakes, secluded camping spots and golf courses.
Libraries have long been providers of recreational programming that enhances quality of life in the province, making the program a natural fit for SLA, states a SRPA press release.
“Libraries are always looking for ways to serve their communities, and this partnership gives libraries the chance to offer another amazing program. This is just one more perk to having a Saskatchewan library card!” said SLA president Amy Rankin.
Park passes must be borrowed in person and are first-come, first-served. Library patrons are encouraged to call their participating branch ahead to ensure passes are available.
