Due to extreme fire hazards, the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport has issued restrictions on open fires in several provincial parks and recreation sites. This includes:
- Buffalo Pound Provincial Park
- Coldwell Recreation Site
Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park
Cypress Lake Recreation Site
Danielson Provincial Park
Douglas Provincial Park
Elbow Harbour Recreation Site
Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park
All open fires in these locations are prohibited.
Self-contained portable gas heating devices and fire pits, barbecues, pressurized stoves and charcoal briquettes will be permitted for cooking and heating purposes at park discretion for the duration of this ban.
The fire ban will stay in place until conditions improve and the Ministry rescinds the order.
Support fire suppression efforts. If you see a fire, report it by calling Park Watch toll-free at 1-800-667-1788.
In an emergency, call 911.
