Mallorytown – Parks Canada is reminding everyone in Ontario that visitor services and vehicle access continue to be suspended at all national parks, national historic sites, heritage canals and national marine conservation areas, including Thousand Islands National Park, over the Victoria Day Long Weekend.
All services and facilities such as washrooms, playgrounds, parking lots, boat ramps and picnic shelters remain closed. All events, group and interpretive activities remain suspended until further notice.
At Thousand Islands National Park, all island facilities remain closed to visitors. Docks, mooring buoys, toilets, picnic shelters and camping areas are closed and beaching is suspended. Access to all of the park’s mainland properties including Jones Creek, Mallorytown Landing and Landon Bay remains suspended. The park’s visitor centre, trails, oTENTiks, parking areas, and the Mallorytown boat launch continue to be closed.
Parks Canada understands the importance nature plays in the mental and physical well-being of Canadians, particularly now. Parks Canada will begin a safe, gradual opening of some outdoor locations in select national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas starting June 1.
Until June 1, all suspensions of visitor services and closures of facilities announced in March remain in place. For their own safety, Canadians should not try to access locations that are closed, particularly over the Victoria Day long weekend.
