Gregoire Lake Provincial Park Re-Opening in Coming Months

The Gregoire Lake Provincial Park is set to re-open this year.

After being closed for nearly two years due to the Horse River Wildfire, the public will be allowed back in sometime late this spring.

In an email sent to Fort McMurray News, the Ministry of Environment and Parks says since its forced closure, they’ve been able to update the park.

This includes adding 30 amp electrical services to all campsites and two loops also having water at individuals sites. All public buildings have been re-roofed and repaired from fire damage, the roads are repaved and widened, while new gazebos and extra parking have been added.

Certain trails have also been improved while a new emergency exit road has been created.

They note there are still multiple projects still underway including additional landscaping, adding signage, repairing the existing shower building, and work on the new central building that functions as a park office, convenience store, shower building and laundry.

Next year, the province will finish rebuilding the group use area while adding three new areas.

Their hope is to have the majority of things ready for the May long weekend but will all depend on the weather.
