Parks Canada's Winter on the West Coast

 Winter on the West Coast

Activities at our parks and sites continue through the winter. If you enjoy being outside, try storm-watching at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve or go for a walk in Gulf Islands National Park Reserve or Fort Rodd Hill National Historic Site. If you’d rather stay out of the weather, spend time with family and friends cozying up to history at Fort Langley National Historic Site or the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site.

Bill Reid Gallery

Gwaii Haanas: Land Sea People celebrates the interconnectedness of land, sea and people. The exhibition tells the story of Gwaii Haanas through contemporary art by Haida and Canadian artists. Parks Canada is excited to be collaborating with the Bill Reid Gallery to deliver this ground breaking public exhibition. Gwaii Haanas: Land Sea People runs from October 28, 2015- March 27, 2016, Wednesday to Sunday, 11am – 5pm.
