The Saskatchewan Government has announced that the pool building at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park will be getting an upgrade.

Approximately $475,000 will be spent, part of $14.6 million being spent on provincial parks for 2015-16.

“Parks will be undertaking a major refurbishment of the existing pool building at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park – contains washroom, shower and change room facilities for park users. As well as, houses mechanical equipment and has a customer service. The building we will be refurbishing is about 30 years of age,” said Byron Davis with the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport.

Davis says the bulk of the work will be done before the winter and the facility will be available for use again for next season.

“Exterior cladding, widows, siding, metal roofing will be installed for low maintenance purposes. So just a general upgrading to make sure the building is in good shape, publicly accessible and maintained well. Cypress Hills is a very popular park and of course we’ve experienced significant growth and visitation through the park system recently,” he said.

This renovation to the pool building is part of $14.6 million of funding for capital projects at provincial parks, a total investment of $52 million since 2012.
