Kings Castle Provincial Park

Administrado por The Swim Guide

Kings Castle Park is a magical spot to bring children because of the multiple unique play structures and forts in the park, including statues of storybook characters, right off of the picturesque beach. The park has an annual summer family day event with a barbeque and kid’s activities. Kings Castle is located on Murray River, with an unsupervised river beach swimming area and large barbeque areas, convenient for group gatherings. The beach has change rooms, washrooms and a canteen. Kings Castle is found in Gladstone, on Route 348.

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.

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.
