New investments in Duck Mountain Provincial Park will simultaneously improve services and amenities for visitors while making the park more environmentally friendly to lakes and rivers, the province says.

Work to be done this year includes the construction of a new, modern washroom building and playground in the day use area at Blue Lake campground and a new waste-transfer station at Shilladay Lake.

Future work planned for the park includes ATV trail upgrades to improve water crossings and trail routing on the Mossberry Lake Trail, refurbishment of the main dock used by cottagers at Wellman Lake, new campground offices at Blue Lake and Childs Lake, additional campsite electrification at the Blue Lake campground and construction of new waste transfer stations at Wellman and Whitefish lakes.

About $2.4 million will be invested in the park through 2020.

"While modern and green park infrastructure improves the park experience for families, it also makes the park more environmentally friendly to our lakes and rivers," said Conservation and Water Stewardship Minister Gord Mackintosh, who announced the funding Friday morning. "These long-term capital investments will improve the park for users and make a real difference to the environment."
