Look at a satellite image of Prince Edward Island and you'll see a lot of green. Of course: this is the "Garden Province." But even within the green are specially designated lands that honour and preserve the natural wonders. National, provincial, and community parks. Many are for day-use, while others include campgrounds. Some offer interpretive programs related to the local wildlife, or host special events. Trails abound. They include some of our most popular beaches. Open spaces for outdoor sports, picnics, exploration, and leisurely walks are plentiful. Our Provincial Parks dot the coastline, offering beach access and some unforgettable views of the surrounding waters. Some include museums and heritage sites. In 2012, the Prince Edward Island National Park celebrated its 75th anniversary with a series of special programs and events. Stretching across 60 kilometres of the North Shore, the park includes seven supervised beaches, as well as cultural treasures such as the Green Gables House and Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Sites. Our parks are filled with wonders-protected, preserved, and available for all to share.
