Union Corner Provincial Park

Wellington Station, Prince Edward Island
Managed by The Swim Guide

Union Corner is a day use, unsupervised beach, off of route 11. It has washrooms, playground, fireplaces and change rooms, making your beach trip easy and convenient. The name of the park comes from the nearby town, which was named “union” because it was said to be built by the goodwill of everyone living there. Near the beach is the Union Corner Schoolhouse Museum, an interesting addition to your day at the beach and a chance for kids and families to learn about what going to school used to be like in PEI.

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.
