The federal government committed $8.8 million in infrastructure funding to Riding Mountain National Park on Wednesday.

The Canada Day funding announcement was made by Dauphin—Swan River—Marquette MP Robert Sopuck, which will cover rehabilitation and renovations at several locations within and adjacent to the Wasagaming townsite.

Also on the list is the redevelopment of the Riding Mountain National Park operations centre, the recovery of the aspen parkland ecosystem, and continued protection of Clear Lake.

Last December, Ottawa announced $36.4 million over five years for the resurfacing of Highway 10, the main highway leading into the park.
