Brudenell River Provincial Park

Managed by The Swim Guide

This river beach and provincial park in the Georgetown Royalty community is the largest in the eastern part of the island and is jam packed with activities. It has a rich history too, Brudenell was an Acadian settlement before it was burnt to the ground by the British in the 18th century. There are plenty of exercising opportunities in the riverfront pathway, walking trails and the Confederation trail (train tracks that have been reverted into a trail that goes from one end of PEI to the other) is 1 km away. There is a heated and supervised outdoor pool, but the river beach does not have lifeguard supervision. The park offers evening activities for kids, along with a playground and even kayaking, canoeing, and horseback riding! If any of the onsite attractions are not appealing, nearby there are two 18 hole golf courses and the Garden of the Gulf Museum offers guided tours. The park also has essential amenities like showers, washrooms, laundry, picnic tables and fireplaces.

SOURCE INFORMATION

Prince Edward Island does monitor recreational water quality. Please use caution if visiting these beaches and look for signs posted in the area indicating whether the water is clean enough for swimming.

Please note: some estuaries may be anoxic. Information is available on the PEI Environment website: http://www.gov.pe.ca/environment/anoxic-events

Visitors can often find sand dunes at PEI beaches and parks. Dunes are fragile and easily damaged. It can take as few as 10 footsteps through the same area to destroy a marram grass colony. The roots of this protective plant cover act as a net, shaping and containing the sand. Wind blows away at the exposed sand, turning small depressions into giant holes called blowouts. Blowouts turn stable dunes into constantly shifting hills that are unable to support vegetation or wildlife.

Please use the boardwalks and carpeted foot paths at designated beach access points and stay off the dunes to prevent further damage.
