Facilities and services

Grasslands National Park

Grasslands National Park is divided into two blocks - East and West. Each Block is accessed through different communities, with a wide variety of services. Within the boundary of Grasslands National Park there are no services such as fuel, grocery, auto mechanic, or medical centres. Surrounding communities offer some of these services but hours of operation often vary seasonally, and are not 24/7. Please plan ahead and research your route as well as available services along that route. See local tourism page for information about surrounding communities.
