Summer 2020: get informed before visiting

Discover the fascinating story of how matter coalesced and led to the very beginnings of life with Emergence: Cosmic Evolution, now showing on the giant screen! Or strap on your headset and lift off to admire the wonders of Virtual Cosmos.

Get a sense of the immensity of the universe on Parcours du Soleil, one of the park’s many hiking trails. Heads up parents! At the halfway point, there’s a basket of “moon rocks” kids can exchange for a souvenir at the visitor’s centre.

Take Summit Drive to locate all eight planets in the Dark Sky Reserve’s Giant Solar System, the world’s third largest scale model of the solar system. It’s a cosmically cool way to take in some spectacular scenery while learning about astronomy.

As a founding partner of the first-ever International Dark Sky Reserve, ASTROLab helps preserve the night sky over a very wide area. Learn how to counter the harmful impacts of light pollution, which doesn’t just interfere with astronomical observation, but also affects nocturnal species and ecosystems.
