Parks Canada Summer Update

As the 2018 summer season comes to an end, we’d like to thank everyone who came out to Parks Canada places and enjoyed the summer with us! The beautiful weather paired with FREE admission for youth made this summer one of the best ones yet! Beach Supervision and Facilities The last day for Greenwich beach supervision was August 20. The beach facilities such as showers and composting toilets will remain open until September 15. For more information on beach supervision, visit our website (www.pc.gc.ca) or call 902-672-6350. Parks Canada Trails in PEI Late summer is a beautiful time of year for taking in the Greenwich Dunes trail. Also at Greenwich, you can find Havre Saint Pierre trail, a 1.1 km wheelchair accessible trail with great lookout points, and Tlaqatik, a wooded trail with interpretive panels and lots of wildlife. Trails in PEI National Park will be maintained until October 12. Visitors are reminded that on-leash dogs are welcome on all PEI National Park and National Historic Site trails (including bridges and boardwalks), but domestic animals are not permitted on beaches between April 1 and October 15. Until September 14: The Ni’n na L’nu: The Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island exhibit is on display at PEI National Park’s Greenwich Interpretation Centre. The award-winning interactive exhibition brings the history of the Mi’kmaq of PEI to life through artifacts, pictures, audio stories and music. The centre is open daily, from 9 AM to 5 PM.
