COVID-19 – Sept 2020 update

Wanuskewin reopened to the public on Saturday, September 5, 2020.

The park is on the tail end of a major $40 Million Dollar renewal project, and although the entire project is not yet complete, we will be opening our beautifully renovated Art Galleries, Gift Shop, Restaurant, Trail System, brand new Playground, and of course our Bison Viewing Platform.

Wanuskewin is taking COVID 19 preventative measures very seriously and as such, the park is now a “MASK MANDATORY” facility. All patrons and staff will be wearing masks unless they are outside on the trails or in the plaza.

To welcome you back safely, we have many other new protocols in place during this time including:

– guest contact tracing forms to fill in on arrival
– increased cleaning schedules
– numerous hand sanitizing stations
– direction arrows and spacing inside the Visitor Centre
– suggested flow map on the trails
– capacities listed in each space
– socially distanced daily programs and tours
– and more
