Canada’s Parks Day is a national event, showcasing parks and historic sites, in every province and territory in Canada. It’s an annual event where thousands of people participate in fun, educational, family-oriented events in parks and Historic Sites across the country. Many activities highlighted the important role that parks play in maintaining healthy and resilient ecosystems, protecting critical habitat for species-at-risk and contributing to human health and well-being.
First celebrated in 1990, Canada’s Parks Day is an opportunity for Canadians to participate in one of hundreds of unique and fun events taking place in parks and sites from coast to coast to coast.
Events are organized in national parks, national historic sites, provincial parks, territorial parks and in community and regional parks across Canada.
