Parks Canada in the Fall

Fall offers a new season for you to explore at our places!

The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler. The summer crowds are gone, but there’s a still lot to see and do at Parks Canada places close to home. Kick through crisp Garry Oak leaves at Fort Rodd Hill, plan an early fall day trip to the Gulf Islands, cozy up to the forge at Fort Langley, or grab your surfboard and head to Long Beach in Pacific Rim as the ocean waves build.

Each of our parks and sites offers you a unique experience. Whether you are looking for an autumn afternoon visit to a historic fort or a weekend storm watching trip to the coast, we can help you create lasting memories for you and your family.

Activities at our parks and sites continue through the fall and winter. If you enjoy being outside, try storm watching, or a winter hike at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, or Fort Rodd Hill & Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites. 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.

From self-guided explorations to engaging school programs, our places offer one-of-a-kind educational experiences throughout the fall and winter seasons.

On stormy days, you can warm up at the Kwisitis Visitor Centre in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Read a book and watch the ocean from inside the cozy Contemplation Room.

Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a fur trader in the 1800s? Are you curious to know more about the salmon canning industry in Western Canada? Learn the rich history of our nation where it happened at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, Fort Langley, Fort Rodd Hill & Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites.
