Terra Nova National Park is in Eastern Newfoundland. It joined Canada's National park system in 1957. It is Canada's most easterly national park and, like all of Canada's national park System, Terra Nova is dedicated to protecting and celebrating the beauty and variety of the land. Terra Nova is an excellent way to experience the nature, discovery and adventure of eastern Newfoundland. It is a place where sheltered Atlantic fiords stretch inland to touch the boreal landscape.

The Terra Nova region is rich in natural resources, such as fish and sea mammals. These resources 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.
