Investing in Nova Scotia’s Provincial Parks

  • Prioritizing provincial park system upgrades with a $15 investment over four years.
  • Adding more serviced sites, new trails, accessible and gender neutral comfort stations, and doubling annual funding for routine infrastructure improvements.
  • Prioritizing accessibility so that every Nova Scotian is able to experience the natural beauty of our province.

In the last five years, camping parks have experienced a 31 percent increase in overnight bookings. COVID-19 created new pressures as demand increased. As well, users would like to see the season extended and see improvements to visitor experiences.

A re-elected Liberal Government will make our provincial park system a priority, investing $15 million over four years for major upgrades.

These transformational investments will include more serviced sites, new trails, accessible and gender neutral comfort stations while also doubling the annual funding available for routine infrastructure improvements. Graves Island for example has a causeway that has been damaged by tides and weather events requiring an erosion mitigation solution. Rissers Beach has at least two bridges that require replacement. These types of capital improvements will be undertaken under this initiative

We will also prioritize accessibility in our plan so that every Nova Scotian is able to experience the natural beauty of our province.

Provincial parks celebrate and honour Nova Scotia’s natural beauty. They are gathering places for families and friends, provide many children with their first adventure into nature, and protect important ecological sites. We are proud to see Nova Scotians flocking to our provincial parks and we’re committed to matching their enthusiasm.
