Prince Edward Island National Park

Prince Edward Island National Park - Discover the stunning beauty of the Island's North Shore on the seven supervised beaches and over 50 km of hiking and cycling trails in PEI National Park. Enjoy daily learning programs for all ages and learn about Island culture through music and stories at evening campfires. The National Park also features unique cultural resources, notably Green Gables, part of L. M. Montgomery's Cavendish National Historic Site, and Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Site.

PEI National Park - Greenwich - In 1998, six kilometres of the Greenwich Peninsula were added to the Park to protect unique dune formations, rare plants and animals, as well as archaeological findings dating back 10,000 years. The largest sand dunes on PEI tower above white-sand beaches to create a stunning backdrop for one of Atlantic Canada's top trail systems. The learning centre's floor model and multi-media theatre showcase how nature and 10,000 years of settlement have made Greenwich a must-see destination.
