“We have made numerous improvements throughout Parks of the St. Lawrence campgrounds and beach areas this year. Beach improvements, campsite upgrades and the recent addition of new playground equipment at our beach areas is a definite bonus for families looking to beat the heat this summer. The Children’s Festival is a new event we have added to give families an affordable way to come out and enjoy our parks,” said Lou Seiler, Manager of Parks & Recreation, St. Lawrence Parks Commission.
