A Bird’s Eye View of Owls Head Provincial Park

Owls Head Provincial Park is a 705.2-acre property, with over 5 miles of publicly owned shoreline.

As unanimously approved-in-principle by local community representatives in 1975, Owls Head Provincial Park was intended to be part of the “Islands and Headlands” component of the Eastern Shore Seaside Parks System. The area was supposed to be one of the “Natural Environment Parks Proposed as representative examples of the unique coastal landscape.”

The bedrock ridges were formed as the glaciers scraped across the province thousands of years ago. The whole ecosystem, including the coastal broom crowberry plant community, has evolved around these conditions.
