“Diversion is so significant, it reinforces volunteer organizations, constructs local area pride and draws in occupants in local area improvement across the territory,” Stops, Culture and Game Pastor Laura Ross said. ” We want to encourage residents of Saskatchewan to make the most of the summer weather and take advantage of the many wonderful parks and outdoor recreation facilities that are available to them.

The leadership, assistance, and services provided by the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) help residents of Saskatchewan benefit from recreational activities. SPRA welcomes everybody to observe Parks and Diversion Month and partake in the numerous exercises that add to the extraordinary personal satisfaction in Saskatchewan.

Jody Boulet, president of the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association, stated, “Let’s celebrate the important contributions that local, regional, and provincial parks and open spaces make to our communities this June.” Not only does this celebration highlight the splendor of our natural areas, but it also emphasizes how crucial it is to preserve them for future generations.”

The parks and recreation delivery system funded by the Sask Lotteries offers residents and visitors thousands of recreational opportunities. This includes the Regional Park Pass Lending Program, a partnership between SPRA, the Saskatchewan Library Association, and the Saskatchewan Regional Parks Association that provides free access to Saskatchewan’s regional parks.

A renewed lottery distribution agreement was signed in May by the Government of Saskatchewan, Sask Sport, SaskCulture, and SPRA, continuing a long-standing and fruitful partnership. Throughout the province, a wide range of sport, culture, and recreation programs, services, and initiatives are supported by Sask Lotteries’ proceeds.

Over 12,000 organizations in the province that promote sports, culture, and recreation receive funding from the Sask Lotteries.
