Parks Canada’s red chairs: where it all started

In 2011, 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.

Where will your next red chair moment be?

Parks Canada has placed over 200 red Adirondack chairs in peaceful and scenic locations throughout many of the country’s most unique and treasured places, including the 16 sets found here at Gros Morne National Park..

Grab a friend, go for a walk then relax and snap a selfie on one of our red chairs. Each location immerses you in the landscape and its history. Each location offers panaramic views of nearby mountains, fjords and the Atlantic Ocean.
