Parks Canada will be allowing limited visitor access and offering basic services at Point Pelee National Park starting in mid-June.

The park will reopen for weekends starting June 13th from 10:00am until sunset.  Parks Canada says the only the following services and facilities will be open:

  • Day-use trails, including cycling access on designated trails and pathways;
  • Day-use areas, including green spaces, picnic areas, and beaches;
  • Some public washrooms located at Sanctuary, Northwest Beach and the Blue Heron picnic area;
  • Parking areas at Orientation, Sanctuary, Northwest Beach, and Marsh Boardwalk day-use areas.

Officials say the park is not opening until mid-June due to construction and paving of the main road that is still underway in the north end of the park.  Construction on the road is expected to wrap up around June 12th, they say.

Starting June 13th, Parks Canada says the road will be open to vehicles from the park entrance to the Marsh Boardwalk on weekends only, with parking available in designated areas north of the boardwalk. They say access to the multi-use trails throughout the park will be open to pedestrians and cyclists starting June 13th on weekends only.

Officials say visiting Point Pelee National Park will be different than it has been in the past and visitors are asked to plan ahead by checking Point Pelee’s website at www.pc.gc.ca/pelee before they visit.
