Manitobans can enjoy free provincial park entry for the entire month of February.

"Winter is an excellent time to enjoy the beauty of our provincial parks and there are many outdoor activities to take part in as a family or on your own," Sustainable Development Minister Rochelle Squires announced in a release last Friday.

"Whether it’s cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or taking a quiet walk, there is much to see in Manitoba parks and we encourage everyone to enjoy them in winter just as they do in the summer."

Vehicle permits are not required, but SnoPasses are still required for snowmobiles using groomed trails in the parks. Entrance fees still apply in national parks.

Anglers are also reminded that no angling licence is required during this year’s Winter Family Fishing Weekend from Feb. 16 to 18. Anglers will be able to fish without a licence provincewide. Conservation limits will apply and a federal licence will still be required to fish in national parks.
