Gros Morne National Park
Experience Gros MorneInterpretation activities offer residents and visitors fun and exciting ways to discover Gros Morne. We’d love to see you this year!
Along with our classic programs, such as “Gros Morne: An Earth Odyssey,” “the Western Brook Pond Boat Tour,” and the “Broom Point fishing premises, this year, we’ll also offer these new ones: On Friday nights in July and August, take part in “The Night Life” – an evening program that explores the forest on the edge of night. In the southern end of the park, the “Reach for the Top” program offers a guided off-trail hike up the bowl of the Tablelands. And mark your calendars for July 16! We’ll be celebrating Parks Day on July 16 by offering a “Learn-to Camp” overnight program at Berry Hill Campground. The new art exhibit at the Discovery Centre is Sydney Lancaster’s Boundary/Time/Surface. As Artist in Residence in Gros Morne, Sydney used the Green Point geological site to explore how scientists divide up geological time, and relates this to the scale of our human experience. Check out her multi-media art exhibit downstairs at the Discovery Centre, Join a Parks Canada guide at Green Point on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Theatre Newfoundland Labrador (TNL) return to Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse on Aug. 28 at 2 p.m. with their next instalment of The Memorial Show. Each year from 2014-2017, TNL is presenting a personal tribute behind four of the 16 names that are etched in stone on the Cow Head cenotaph. They are the names of the men from the surrounding area who sacrificed their lives in times of war. Their stories are interlaced with songs and poems from World War I. This year, the performance honours the sacrifice of Arthur House, Emmanuel House, Jesse House, and Luke House.
