  • “Many more awesome activities await you this summer.”

“Canada’s Parks Day is an annual event where thousands of people participate in fun, educational, family-oriented events in parks and Historic Sites across the country. Many activities highlight 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.”

In 2013, Parks Canada and Google collaborated to document many of Canada’s most iconic national heritage places through the unique panoramic lens of Google Street View.

  • “2013 marks the first year Google’s new “Trekker” Street View backpack was used in Canada.
  • Capable of going anywhere a person can hike, the Trekker is the work-horse of the Parks Canada-Google collaboration, allowing Google to document a wide range of features within Canada’s national heritage places including back country hikes, front country day use trails, campgrounds, the many nooks and crannies of historic properties, and even along the fortification walls of historic battlements.”
  • Please click here to take a Street View tour of a Parks Canada location:
    1. zoom in closer to the location’s marker;
    2. drag the “Pegman” over the map to reveal the blue-coloured Street View trajectories ready for you to explore.
