GRCA parks offer new pricing to encourage usage

CAMBRIDGE - Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) parks are opening for the 2013 season with a new pricing structure that officials say will help people enjoy the parks more often.

The new prices encourage mid-week and shoulder season visits with lower camping and day-use fees. Prices will be higher during the busy summer season and on weekends.

And this year there is a new 10 per cent seniors’ discount for day use. There is also a 10% seniors discount on vehicle season passes.

The GRCA operates 11 parks, eight of which offer camping. They will be open until Oct. 15.

Campers will get a $7 per night break if they visit one of the eight campgrounds on a weekday before June 13 or after Sept. 3. That’s a reduction from the normal summer weekday fees of $34 to $51 a night depending on the park and level of service. Campers will pay a bit more on weekends and long weekends.

Fees for adult day use will range from $5.50 to $6 depending on the park and the day of the week. The child’s fee (ages six to 14) will range from $2.75 to $3. Children five and under are free.

Season passes, which allow unlimited access to all parks for a carload, will be $122.

More information on each park, including fees, can be found in the Parks section of the GRCA website at
