Weekend: 7 Provincial Parks Set To Open

It's the unofficial kick off to the camping season - and seven provincial parks are set to open for visitors. Some of the parks that will open beginning today, include Graves Island and Rissers Beach in Lunenburg County. Upgrades at Graves Island will give campers more water and electricity serviced sites and a new main office. Thomas Raddal in Queens County, Porters Lake in Halifax and Ellenwood Lake in Yarmouth County are each set to open as well. The remaining parks will welcome guests in June. Campers should remember dogs need to be on a leash and alcohol is not allowed in any park before June 2.
