Located 50 km (30 miles) south-east of Windsor, Ontario, Point Pelee National Park of Canada is one of Canada's smallest national parks, and yet this tiny green oasis attracts approximately 300,000 visitors each year.

Point Pelee brings people and the environment together. From picnic areas to the Visitor Centre, to famous vistas like the Tip and the Marsh Boardwalk, all facilities and services are designed to ensure a memorable experience and to preserve the Park's natural environment.

Conservation

Geography and the moderating effects of Lake Erie have allowed southern plants and animals to flourish at Point Pelee.
