Free admission to provincial parks for first responders and military personnel - Aug. 05, 2014
New River Beach
Members of the military, veterans, first responders and their accompanying families are welcome to enter all provincial parks such as New River Beach free of charge.
Personnel who will be granted complimentary admission include, but are not limited to, members and veterans of the Canadian Forces, members of the RCMP, regional and municipal police officers, Ambulance New Brunswick staff, and both professional and volunteer firefighters.
“We value the considerable contributions and sacrifices made every day by military personnel and our first responders, who are entrusted with the safety of our communities and who demonstrate great selflessness in accomplishing this goal,” said Brian Macdonald, legislative secretary to the premier, responsible for Military Affairs.
“We rely on them, and we want to give back. We hope that they will take some time with their families to enjoy New Brunswick's terrific provincial parks for free this summer and in future.”
The complimentary entrance includes the five provincially-operated parks which currently charge a vehicle entrance fee: Mactaquac, New River Beach, Murray Beach, Parlee Beach and Mount Carleton.
Fees for other activities or services at provincial parks, such as camping or skiing, are not covered under this benefit.
