TERRA NOVA NATIONAL PARK, NL – You can now virtually experience the beautiful scenery at Terra Nova National Park thanks to Google Street View.
Google is celebrating Earth Day on April 22 this year by releasing seven all-new sets of imagery of Parks Canada’s places, one of them being Terra Nova National Park.
It includes the park’s many trails such as Outport Trail, Coastal Trail, Goowiddy Path Trail and Ochre Hill Trail.
Google Street View shows 360-degree panorama images of a location. Since 2013, 167 Parks Canada’s locations have been documented.
It’s hoped the initiative will encourage more Canadians to visit their national parks and historical places.
“This new Google Street View imagery introduces visitors to some of the incredible wonders of Canada’s vast network of protected wilderness and encourages them to discover more,” Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna, the minister responsible for Parks Canada, said in a news release.
The six other new locations available on Google Street View are Nááts'ihch'oh National Park Reserve, Glacier National Park, the Lake Louise area in Banff National Park, Nahanni National Park Reserve, Mount Revelstoke National Park and the West Coast Trail in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
