Canada’s Parks Day is an opportunity for Canadians to participate in fun, educational and family-oriented events at parks and historic sites across the country. Parks Day falls on the third Saturday of July every year.

You can help celebrate Yukon parks and historic sites - join in on Parks Day events happening throughout the territory or create your own adventure at one of our many national, territorial or municipal parks, historic sites, heritage rivers, campgrounds and other special places.
