12. Cypress Hills Dark Sky Preserve

The night sky tells an ancient story and in a few places you can see the details of that story more clearly than others.

Cypress Hills Provincial Park is a Dark Sky Preserve where this story can be seen loud and clear. Watch as the day fades and the darkness comes alive with the light of night. Look in the Galaxy and search for shooting stars or see if you can recognize constellations or the planets in our own solar system. Maybe you will be treated to the dancing of the Northern Lights…the night sky comes alive in the Cypress Hills.

October to May gives the best viewing although for the night owls the summer can still be a treat.
