Batchawana Bay Provincial Park resumes regular operating season

McGuinty government encourages families to enjoy park’s natural beauty

Ontarians will be able to spend more time next season enjoying the great outdoors at Batchawana Bay Provincial Park.

After an annual review of opening and closing dates for provincial parks, Ontario has decided to return Batchawana Bay Provincial Park to its previous operating season for 2013.

The park will open May 10 and close October 15.

Last season, the park’s operating dates were adjusted due to low visitation rates at the beginning and end of the operating season and because similar services were available at nearby Pancake Bay Provincial Park.

This change will allow visitors to enjoy this incredible park well into the fall.” - Michael Gravelle, minister of natural resources

"Batchawana Bay is one of the most beautiful provincial parks in Ontario, and keeping it open into the fall season allows local residents to enjoy it to its fullest. The park also serves as an important tourist destination, which strengthens the region’s economy and supports jobs." - David Orazietti, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie
