New Recreational Activities in National Parks, National Historic Sites and National Marine Conservation Areas

"Offering visitors a variety of opportunities to experience national protected heritage places through recreational activities is one way that the Parks Canada Agency is bringing its mandate of protection, education and experience to life.
Over the past two years, five activities have been assessed at the national level with the collaboration of various stakeholder groups. The following activities could soon become part of the menu of activities offered in national parks, national historic sites or national marine conservation areas:
mountain biking,traction kiting (kite-surfing, kite-boarding), guided interpreted tours including canopy walks, zip lines, via ferrata, and elements of aerial parks, community gardening and hang gliding and paragliding."
