TOP 3 PROVINCIAL PARKS IN CANADA
2014 Traveler’s Choice Awards
Top 3 Most Visited Provincial Parks in Western / Northern Canada
Provincial / Territorial Parks
Canada’s Provincial / Territorial Parks – every province and territory in Canada has some parks which are designated as provincial parks. All are created to protect and preserve, either, our history and/or sensitive eco – systems. Many are home to assorted wildlife, flora and fauna (some endangered).
Canada’s oldest provincial park (est.1893) is the Algonquin Provincial Park located in Ontario, Canada. Since then there have been many parks created in all 13 regions of Canada. Some are landlocked parks while others are marine parks.
Together, our provincial and territorial park system has attracted millions of travelers to our country every summer and winter. To many the provincial and territorial parks in Canada are a refuge for adventure, activities, relaxation, education and peace of mind.
The provincial park system varies. Some parks are not developed at all and are remote and hard to access. While others are developed with a bevy of services like campgrounds, marinas, cabins, yurts, general stores, playgrounds, equipment rentals, museums, showers, change rooms, fish stations, laundromats and a whole lot more.
