Green Park Provincial Park

Managed by The Swim Guide

Visitors can go to the Shipbuilding Museum & Historic Yeo House to learn more about this industry and PEI’s past. Green Park offers campsites right on the river to give the most natural camping experience possible. There are many fun activities at the park, like frisbee golf, nature trails, a playground for kids and amenities such as washrooms, showers, laundry, kitchen stations, and picnic areas.

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.
