What is the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve Red Chair Experience?
The red chairs are placed in special locations around Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and they are all about taking time to connect with nature and with each other.
Some are easy to find, while others provide more of an adventure. All of them offer a place to rest, relax, and reflect on the place you’ve discovered and the journey you took to get there.
Where are the red chairs in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve?
Here are some clues:
Long Beach Area
- There is a wonderful view from the highest viewpoint in the area, if the weather is good you might even get a glimpse of Long Beach!
- Take “A” walk through the temperate rainforest and reflect on the tall giants that surround you.
West Coast Trail
- This view point looks out over the area where the SS Valencia went down in 1906 with 133 souls lost to the Graveyard of the Pacific.
Broken Group Islands
Where did the red chair idea come from?
Our friends at Gros Morne National Park installed 18 sets of chairs throughout Gros Morne in 2013. Visitors have been seeking them out and sharing their chair adventures ever since! The program has grown to include a number of Parks Canada places including Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Site, and Fort Langley National Historic Site!
