Free access on Canada day for all @ParksCanada parks and historic sites

While I have to confess that I don’t actually know many of the National Parks that Parks Canada manages within British Columbia, I do know at least a couple of the National Historic Sites (my favorite being Fort Langley Historic Site, of course, although I also love the Point Atkinson Lighthouse).

As we approach Canada Day, I thought I should let you know that all Parks Canada parks and historic sites will have free access on that day (and if you live in Ottawa, there are a couple of events that are associated/sponsored by Parks Canada).

Canada Day is indeed a special event for all Canadians. To celebrate this day, access to all national parks and national historic sites managed by Parks Canada will be free on July 1st. Come visit us and experience a truly inspiring part of our shared natural and cultural heritage.

If you are in Ottawa you could take part in a special event:

10 am to 5 pm

Visit the “1812 on Tour” kiosk presented by Parks Canada, and learn about a significant chapter in Canada’s history, as well as the most important locations, forts and buildings related to the War of 1812. With more than 20 War of 1812 sites, Parks Canada is the leading presenter of historic experiences from this pivotal era in North American history.

Despite the fact that Canada is still a very young nation, I love its diversity and inclusiveness, and I’m proud to celebrate Canada Day and to help Parks Canada spread the word about all the fantastic Parks, Historic Sites and Historic Persons we have.
