This will help you find all the parks. Nice to see Silbald Park on there. Nice fishing if you can get up there. That and at Marlone Wharf in Jacksons Point

Never really been to a provincial park before. Basically they won't charge you parking, is it how they waive entrance fee?

The website doesn't say long weekends are excluded, so next Monday should be free as well?

answered right on their website:

8. Will entry to parks be free on statutory holidays?

If the statutory holiday falls on a weekday (Monday to Thursday), then day use vehicle permits will also be free on that day.

To help prevent overcrowding and promote physical distancing, capacity will be limited at many provincial parks during busy times. Arrive early to avoid disappointment, consider exploring other provincial parks in your area

Hey!

Yeah I’m certainly stoked to see what the next provincial parks look like. Ha ha I’m planning to use my stored up vacation for the end of June to hit up PEC and the Karwartha Regions!

I bought the pass in may this year. Apparently it's valid for 2 years. I could have just hold off until next year.

It's valid for 2 years because of the free admission.
Since many people bought the pass before the free admissions were implemented, people could either:

1. Ask for refund (I think the deadline was end of June)
2. Keep the pass and it will work this year + next year.
