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
has reduced the park's land area to 18.2 square
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.
