The provincial government just announced that it will be offering free day-use permits at over 100 Ontario Parks this weekend, among other benefits.

A press release states that on Father's Day, on June 20, residents won't have to pay to use the parks during the day.

On top of this, families will also be able to fish across the province without purchasing a licence or carrying an Outdoors Card between June 19 and 20.

"Ontario Parks offer so many opportunities for families to be together, get active and take in the fresh air, and we are happy to provide another affordable way to do that with free day-use this Father's Day," Jeff Yurek, Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, said.

The province had previously announced back in May that it would be providing free weekday day-use permits at 115 of its parks until September 2.
