Packs may be borrowed for one week, and are available for:
- Bon Echo Provincial Park
- Frontenac Provincial Park
- Gould Lake and Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Areas

*Please note that the Ontario Parks day pass found in each backpack is valid at any provincial park. Some parks have seasonal hours of operation.
A combined pass allows access to both the Pump House Steam Museum and the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum for a group of 2 adults and 3 children. These museums are open seasonally, so please visit their websites for hours of operation.
Three passes are available for museums in Ottawa. A single pass for the Canadian Museum of Nature will admit a family group of five (maximum of 3 adults per group).
