What's New

Canada's Coolest School Trip contest is back!

For the fourth year, the My Parks Pass program has launched Canada’s Coolest School Trip contest. With the support of Air Canada and Arm & Hammer, this year’s winning grade 8/secondary 2 class will visit Parks Canada's places in Québec. This five-day all-expense-paid trip will take students to the stunning La Mauricie National Park, and the awe-inspiring historic sites of Québec City.

Visit the My Parks Pass Canada page for more information about Canada's Coolest School Trip contest.

Temporary trail closures

Parks Canada wishes to advise that the Woodlands trail and the Reeds & Rushes trail in Dalvay, Prince Edward Island National Park will be closed until July 2015. This closure is in effect to facilitate upgrades to the park’s wastewater infrastructure. For more information, please contact us.

Cruise the Coastline


The Gulf Shore Parkway in Brackley-Dalvay is an 11km trail that winds through coastal dunescapes and past Covehead Lighthouse, three supervised beaches and bustling Covehead Harbour and on to Dalvay-by-the-Sea. All new for 2014 is the Parks Canada Coastal Cruiser! These 4 wheeled bikes are a fun new way for families and groups to tour PEI National Park at a leisurely pace.

There is a 2-person model and 4-person model available for rent, as well as a 2-person tram that can be attached to either model. Each Coastal Cruiser provides seating for two small children in the front, features independent pedaling systems and gears, as well as a colourful canopy to keep you shaded on your ride.

Rent your Coastal Cruiser for $40 per half-day from Stanhope Campground. Call 902-672-6350 for more information.
