Are Parks of the St.Lawrence sites & Fort Henry free in 2017?
2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Parks Canada is inviting the public to take advantage of free admission to national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas.
But I got my pass from Parks Canada, and your parks are in Canada?
There’s a difference between national parks (Parks Canada) and other kinds of parks located in Canada. And the free 2017 Parks Canada Discovery Pass is only accepted at Canada’s national parks.
Fort Henry and Parks of the St. Lawrence are operated by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, an agency of the Government of Ontario and do not fall under the jurisdiction of Parks Canada.
Although the Canada 150 Discovery Pass does not apply to our sites, we are pleased to offer all guests our Reciprocal Pass. Purchase an admission to visit either Fort Henry (Kingston) or Upper Canada Village (Morrisburg) and you will receive a complimentary admission to return on another visit or to visit the other heritage site absolutely free. Also, if you camp at a Parks of the St. Lawrence campground upon check-in you will receive 2 complimentary admissions that you may use to visit either Upper Canada Village or Fort Henry. Valid until September 4, 2017.
If you have questions regarding the Parks Canada Discovery Pass, contact their National Information Service at 1-888-773-8888, email email@example.com or visit the Parks Canada website.
