Terra Nova National Park of Canada is a place where long fingers of the North Atlantic Ocean touch the island boreal forest of Eastern Newfoundland. Rocky headlands provide shelter from the awesome power of the open ocean. The landscape of the park varies from the rugged cliffs and sheltered inlets of the coastal region to the rolling forested hills, bogs and ponds of the inland. Cultural history abounds in the remnants of sawmills and past human cultures.
Abundant natural resources, such as fish and sea mammals, have attracted people to the Terra Nova area for at least 5,000 years. Prehistoric peoples and European settlers depended on the rich resources of the sea and land, as do many people in the region today.
The significance of the area's natural and cultural heritage was officially recognized in 1957 when Terra Nova became Newfoundland's first national park. Today, people continue to be attracted to this land because of the abundant wildlife, exceptional scenery and array of recreational activities.
