Parks Canada is offering free admission to all national parks, historic sites, and marine conservation areas in 2017 in celebration of Canada 150. Visitors can get their free Parks Canada 2017 Discovery Pass online or at one of the entrance kiosks in PEI National Park, Green Gables Heritage Place, or at Ardgowan National Historic Site.

Prince Edward Island National Park has over 50 km of scenic trails. The replacement of the floating boardwalk on the Greenwich Dunes Trail is expected to be completed by the end of May. Robinsons Island Trail System is a 5 km of multi-use, family-friendly trail system that will be open by early June and is suitable for hikers and bikers of all levels. Homestead Trail is a longer trail with two loops through forest and fields along the shores of New London Bay.

Upcoming events happening at PEI National Park and historic sites:

Province House National Historic Site invites visitors to take in the Story of Confederation at Confederation Centre of the Arts. While Province House is closed for conservation work, this alternate visitor experience is available and includes a replica of the historical Confederation Chamber, guided interpretation of the exhibit, and Parks Canada’s award winning film A Building of Destiny — a 20-minute film that transports viewers back in time for the first eight days in September 1864 when history was made at Province House. Open daily May/June Monday to Saturday from 10 am–3 pm, July/August Monday to Saturday from 9 am–5 pm, and Sundays from 12–5 pm. 

Green Gables Heritage Place is open for the season and will maintain regular dates and hours for the 2017 visitor season despite ongoing renovations. Green Gables House, the grounds, trails and gardens will all remain accessible. Open daily from 9 am–5 pm until October 31. 

Port-La-Joye—Fort Amherst National Historic Site 

The grounds, trails, and washrooms are open. The Visitor Reception Centre will be open daily from 9 am–5 pm starting July 1. Come fly a kite, enjoy a picnic on the grassy slopes, explore the 6 km of trails and check out the interpretive panels that share the site’s rich history of the French, Acadian, British and Mi’kmaw people.
