The grand opening of the renovated Visitor Centre and the Bistro on the Lake in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park was celebrated on Canada Day 2009.
There are new displays and interpretive programs in the Visitor Centre that will better help park visitors appreciate the unique landscapes, fascinating wildlife and rich history of the Cypress Hills area.
Visitors will be able to enjoy healthy snacks or meals in the Bistro on the Lake which is also housed in the same location as the Visitor Centre..
Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Dustin Duncan said, "An excellent parks experience begins with access to excellent services. The renovated building housing the Visitor Centre and Bistro on the Lake will complement the many opportunities campers at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park already enjoy."
The Visitor Centre had previously operated in the administration building and is now located in the former Parks CafÉ building. The building has enough space for both the Bistro on the Lake and the Visitor Centre.and it has undergone upgrades to improve energy efficiency.
