    Canadian National Parks, etc. You have visited

    I'll take up Cardinal's suggestion and start a list of Canadian Natl. Parks visited. Since I love to travel and also canoe, I've visited many. Thank you Canadian Natl. Park Service!

    So far:

    Kluane
    Nahanni
    Mt. Robson, Jasper, Banff, Yoho
    Wood Buffalo
    Forillon
    Kouchibouguac
    Fundy
    Cape Breton
    Gros Morne
    Terra Nova

    Glacier National Park
    Kootenay National Park
    Yoho National Park
    Pacific Rim National Park Reserve
    Banff National Park
    Jasper National Park
    Pukaskwa National Park

    It has occurred to me that I have been to far more Provincial Parks, and that... the provincial parks were, in general, considerably more magnificent than the national parks.

    Personally, I'm a bit embarrased now that I've realized that I've been to so few national parks in Canada.

    Here is the list:
    - Banff
    - Fundy
    - PEI National Park
    - Jasper (bussing through it; does that count?)
    - St. Lawrence Islands --> my favourite!

    As for provincial parks, I have been to a few more. They are as follow:
    Ontario:
    - Algonquin Park
    - Bon Echo Park
    - Ferris Park --> my 2nd favourite
    - Frontenac Park
    - Lake on the Mountain
    - Presqu'ile
    - Sandbanks --> my favourite

    British Columbia:
    - Stanley Park
    - Lynn Canyon Park (is that a provincial park? If not, then it's a beaut for a city's park)

    New Brunswick:
    - Parlee Beach

    I guess my list isn't too bad for someone who doesn't have access to a car.

    Stanley Park is only a municipal park as far as I know. I just visited the BC Parks website to try and verify this, and they had no mention of it in the alphabetical listing.

    The Canadian National Parks are stunning. I went to Yoho, Jasper and Banff last summer and it was the most beautiful place I've ever seen. People haven't believed my photos because the moutains and lakes look so magnificent.

    Lynn Canyon Park is a city park (City of North Vancouver) and it is probably one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. IIt's up there with the Sentier des Douaniers in St-Malo (France), Gates Pass in Tucson, and the beach at La Jolla.

    Fundy - a few times camping and "poaching" trails.
    Kouchibouguac - drove through it a few times taking the scenic route for site visits.
    Rode my bike through the one in PEI, real original name PEI National Park
    Drove through the Bruce Peninsula National Park a few times. The views from the escarpment have to be seen to be believed.
    Been to Point Pelee as a kid
    Camped with Scouts at Georgian Bay Islands National Park of Canada, and actually saw a rattle snake there.

    For a list, location and description of all the parks visit http://parkscanada.pch.gc.ca/progs/np-pn/index_E.asp
