Established in 1937, Prince Edward Island National Park protects a landscape, which includes superlative red sandstone cliffs, offshore bars, submerged estuaries, and some of the nation¨s longest and most popular beaches. The park is a narrow wooded sliver of land stretching just 40 kilometres along the northern coast of Canada¨s smallest province. The park's theme - 'sea, people and the changing landscape' - represents the island's heritage dating from the earliest native people to the European settlers who followed. The erosion along the coast, critical nesting habitat for shorebirds, has reduced the park's land area to 18.2 square kilometres. Green Gables House, of Anne of Green Gables fame, along with the park's expansive beaches and the Dalvay-by-the-Sea mansion, attract thousands of tourists during the summer months.
