Get ready for OK Times with the Okanagan Spring Summer Pack.


There truly is no better way to celebrate Canada Day than by exploring our beautiful country.

And it just so happens that Parks Canada is making it even easier for Canadians to escape the city and head off the beaten path by offering free admission to all of its national parks and historic sites this July 1.

So whether you live near one of these beautiful destinations, or you’re up for a little road trip, you’re going to want to clear your calendars this Canada day and get exploring.

And even though admission to these parks is only free on Canada Day, if you’re 17 and under, you can visit all Parks Canada locations for free, any time of the year.

To get you excited for this Canada Day, we highlighted a few of the spots you can visit this year. You can find the full list of participating sites here.
