Terra Nova National Park

  • Terra Nova National Park
  • Newfoundland & Labrador

Terra Nova National Park in Newfoundland and Labrador is the location where inlets of Bonavista Bay meet the boreal forest of eastern Newfoundland. The park shows evidence of Paleo-Eskimo, Dorset, Maritime Archaic and Beothuk cultures. All of these peoples are now extinct. The teeming waters of Bonavista Bay and Newman Sound have also attracted fishermen for hundreds of years and some of Newfoundland’s oldest settlements were located in what is now the park.
