Parks Canada is responsible for protecting and presenting nationally significant examples of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. The Government is committed to preserving our national parks while making them more accessible, so that more Canadians, including youth and newcomers, can connect with nature.
The Government of Canada is investing approximately $5.5 million in federal infrastructure funding, while celebrating several completed infrastructure projects, in Point Pelee National Park. The announcement was made today by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, Catherine McKenna, as Canada’s southernmost park prepares for its 100th anniversary and a year-long celebration of bringing people and nature together.
This federal infrastructure funding will support the renewal of two popular day use areas – the Marsh Boardwalk and the Tip area – providing new and improved visitor experiences. The tower and stationary section of the marsh boardwalk will be refreshed, and a brand new observation tower will be erected near the Tip to provide an all-new visitor experience of exceptional views of this iconic area of the park.
