You’ll get free admission to not one, but two National Park sites in our region. Stand on the southernmost point of Canada’s mainland at Point Pelee National Park and immerse yourself in this pristine natural sanctuary. Travel the variety of cycling/hiking trails that can take you from gate to tip, paddle through meandering waters, or take a scenic stroll through the iconic Marsh Boardwalk. Then, explore the trenches and barracks at Amherstburg’s Fort Malden National Historic Site of Canada and listen to stories of the War of 1812 – a time that helped to shape the identity of our great nation.
