Parks Canada is investing an unprecedented $3 billion dollars over 5 years to support infrastructure work within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada.

This historic investment supports conservation while promoting visitor experience and making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.

When visiting Green Gables Heritage Place, you may encounter one or more construction zones while we complete this important work. Please plan ahead before you travel to avoid inconvenience. Consult the following list of current infrastructure projects in Green Gables Heritage Place to see how any work might impact your trip. The entire project will be completed in summer 2019.

What to know before your visit

Green Gables Heritage Place will remain open throughout the project.

Regular dates and hours of operation are in effect and Parks Canada continues to provide quality services and programming during the construction period.

While these infrastructure upgrades may result in a short-term inconvenience, they will bring a long-term benefit and improve visitor experience at Green Gables Heritage Place. The construction at Green Gables Heritage Place is part of a $9.5 million site redevelopment project that will improve visitor experience, site facilities and accessibility.
