Cypress Hills Park Office Being Upgraded SouthWest Saskatchewan Tourism  Cypress Hills & Area Attractions

In an effort to serve visitors better, the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park office is being upgraded.

“This building was constructed originally in 1971, so it’s deteriorated considerably over the last couple years,” said Parks Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty on what sparked the need for upgrades in the first place, “there was some problem with the timber that was used with respect to causing some occupational health and safety problems, so we had to move staff out, and we’re going to go in there and completely refurbish it.”

Campers can expect to see a modernized office that will serve as a new combined park administration and campground office.

“The campground office, where people that visit the park actually do their campground reservations and check into the park, we’re now going to take that remote site and locate it back into this administration facility that we’re going to refurbish over the next year or so.”

Doherty added this is part of the Provincial Government’s commitment to improve Saskatchewan’s provincial parks, and quality of life for Saskatchewan residents.

The renovations will be handled by Amron Construction out of Redcliff, Alberta and should be completed by summer of 2014.
