National Park
The Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park is part of Nova Scotia's Provincial Park System. It is a wildlife park in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia, Canada. The 40ha park includes animals, an interpretive centre, hiking trails, a picnic area and playground.HistoryThe park began in the late 1940s as a refuge for orphaned white-tailed deer run by Eldon Pace. By the early 1950s there was so much interest from the public that the park officially opened in 1954. Mr. Pace was the superintendent of the park until 1988. Over the decades the park has expanded and developed into one of Nova Scotia's most popular tourist sites. Throughout the park's history countless orphaned and injured animals, birds and reptiles have been cared for and rehabilitated. From the beginning, the park has been educating visitors about wildlife and environmental issues with thousands of school children participating in onsite education programming.Between 2003 and 2008 the park was regulated as a game sanctuary under the Wildlife Act (R.S.N.S. 1989, c. 504). In 2008 the regulations were changed to officially designate the park as a wildlife park under the act.AnimalsThe park is home to about 90 species of mammals and birds including Arctic wolf, Dall sheep, Indian peafowl, Sable Island pony, moose, black bear, great horned owl, coyote, red fox, white-tailed deer, woodchuck, beaver, turkey vulture, peregrine falcon, red-tailed hawk, bald eagle, raccoon, porcupine, gray wolf, cougar, snowshoe hare, and European magpie.

  • Yes it is true; There are plenty of animals to see, but if the note seems severe statement only because all these animals are in wire pens. It is not easy to take pictures or to better appreciate these great beasts. Wolves are certainly the most beautiful of the Park, on the other hand, male Moose seemed to be dull! Too bad, a little improvement and this park would be sublime

  • Decent number of animals and lots of information available. Not all animals where there in November. Good for about 2 hours of fun.  more »
  • Spent a brilliant day here. Canada's wildlife that everyone talks about but you never see is here. Go see as soon as you can.  more »
