Parks and Protected Areas

Nova Scotia is one of the most beautiful places on earth. From the steep canyon slopes of the Margaree River to the sand dunes of Sand Hills Beach, Nova Scotia’s parks and protected areas support recreation, tourism, research, and education.

They preserve nature, and offer us a place to escape, be adventurous, and just have fun. They also make a big impact on local economies, providing jobs and attracting visitor dollars in nearby communities.

Our Parks and Protected Areas: A Plan for Nova Scotia is ensuring that important natural areas across the province continue to thrive. Visit our interactive map to see the locations of all our parks and protected areas.
