Welcome to Canada's oldest national historic site. We saved you a seat!

Parks Canada has over 200 red Adirondack chairs in peaceful and scenic locations throughout many of the country’s most unique and treasured places, including the two sets found here at Fort Anne.

Once at the heart of many struggles between Europe’s empires, Fort Anne is now a peaceful and quiet place with a sweeping view of the beautiful Annapolis Basin.

Parks Canada’s red chairs: where it all started

In 2011, our friends at Gros Morne National Park came up with the idea to place sets of Adirondack chairs in lesser-known, stunning locations around the park, inviting visitors to enjoy and share on social media. Today, the iconic red chairs can be found in over 100 locations administered by Parks Canada.
