About the Park

There is a high concentration of prehistoric rock carvings at this park. The First Nations peoples created these traditional carvings over 1000 years ago. Concrete replica castings of the petroglyphs can be found in the main interpretation area and visitors can make rubbings of the castings from these. Rubbings are a great souvenir of a visit to this intriguing and educational park.
