Fort Battleford National Historic Site entry and service fees help support visitor services and facilities. This means that every time you visit, you are investing in the park — and in a legacy for future generations.

What is a Park Pass?

A Park Pass is a permit for entry to a national park or national historic site. Park pass fees help pay for scenic parkways, day use areas, trails, public safety, education and information services. Fees remain in the national park or national historic site where they are collected.

Where do my Park Pass fees go?

All revenues from Park Passes remain in the location in which they are collected and help maintain the places and services that national and international visitors use most – including scenic parkways, day use areas, trails and public safety, education and information services.

Canadian tax dollars help Parks Canada create, maintain and restore National Parks, National Historic Sites and National Marine Conservation Areas. Parks Canada tries to ensure good value for visitors and fair economic return for taxpayers while upholding its mandate.
