PEI's Provincial Parks offer something for everyone while promoting an active outdoor lifestyle.

Parks West is responsible for the operation of five fully functional campgrounds and eight day use parks ranging from Jacques Cartier, located west of Alberton, to Bonshaw on the Central Coastal Drive.

Three of the larger parks, Jacques Cartier, Cedar Dunes and Cabot Beach, offer a full slate of educational and interesting programs in addition to daily programming and supervised swimming. Some of the more popular events include Sand Castle Competition, Night in the Park Concert series at Cedar Dunes and Jacques Cartier and a whole host of festivals including Seniors Day at Cabot Beach.

All of these parks have lifeguards on duty for camper and visitor safety.

All of our day use parks provide a wide range of playground equipment, picnic shelters and washroom facilities, making them an ideal family fun destination. Two day use parks also have lifeguards on duty: Chelton Beach and Basin Head.

Parks East is responsible for the operation of five fully functional campgrounds and six day use parks ranging from Red Point, located east of Souris, to Wood Islands Provincial Park.

Panmure Island, Brudenell, Red Point, Northumberland and Kings Castle offer daily programming. Some of the more popular events include Seniors Day, Kids Day, and Family Fun Day.
