Our mascot, Parka!

Hey parents! This busy little beaver likes to explore, have fun and discover something new each day. Parka invites you and your family to join her in exploring Canada’s national parks, historic sites and marine conservation areas. She loves to encourage kids to get up and go, see, do, explore and enjoy!

Look for Parka on your next visit to a Parks Canada place. She’ll be waiting to welcome you!
