Discover a national park on New Brunswick’s Acadian Coast where lush mixed-wood forests lead to colorful salt marshes and warm ocean beaches. Offshore, golden sand dunes foster calm seas. At night, this Dark Sky Preserve is a celestial masterpiece; in winter, it is a snowbound fun zone. And each of these natural wonders intertwines with fascinating Mi’gmaq and Acadian cultures. Welcome to Kouchibouguac National Park—an awe-inspiring all-season destination. Parks Canada worked closely with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada to have Kouchibouguac National Park declared a Dark-Sky Preserve.
