Where did the red chair idea come from?
Initiated by Gros Morne National Park in 2011, Parks Canada's Red Chair Experience program has rapidly expanded to other national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas across the country.
Installed in locations that are most emblematic of Canada, the red Adirondack chairs enable visitors to experience unforgettable moments in exceptional settings while connecting with nature and history.
