Congratulations, 2020 graduates!

We know that Ontario graduates have worked hard in school all year.

To help you celebrate your success and start summer off right, Ontario Parks is offering free daytime admission to 2020 high school graduates throughout the month of July, Monday through Thursday.

What form of identification is required?

Each time a 2020 high school graduate enters a day-use park, they will be asked to show their student ID card.

Do high school graduate passes apply to families of graduates?

A daily vehicle permit covers all occupants of a vehicle. The class of 2020 high school graduates will cover all those riding in the car with the student.

Do normal rates apply for all other activities?

Yes, normal rates will apply for all other activities, including all camping and equipment rental activities. Some rental operations may be available in the park you wish to visit.

Check with the park directly to see what is available before visiting.

Why not other graduates?

At this time, only 2020 high school graduates are eligible for promotion.

College graduates and other visitors may be interested in other initiatives at Ontario parks during the summer, such as free admission on Canada Day.

Will physical distancing be enforced?

We count on people to be responsible when enjoying our parks and to follow public health advice, including physical distancing, staying at least two meters away from others and wearing face coverings where physical distancing may be a challenge.YoIf this is not possible, wash your hands regularly with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. If you are worried about having COVID-19, get tested and stay home.

The safety of our visitors and staff is always our top priority. We are implementing measures to address overcrowding and promote physical distancing in our park spaces and buildings during peak visitation hours, limiting occupancy for day use in select provincial parks. This may include limiting the number of daily vehicle permits issued.

Ministry officials will be present in provincial parks to provide information, assist in emergencies and enforce provincial park rules and regulations. Additionally, these areas may be patrolled by local police or other law enforcement agencies.
