Nova Scotia has a wealth of provincial parks. Some are small picnic areas, and others are large parks with a variety of facilities. Lennox Passage Provincial Park located on the North Shore of Isle Madame on Cape Breton Island (5 km / 3 mi east of the junction of Routes 320 and 206) offers a picnic area with tables scattered through a forest and open areas, a saltwater beach, and 2 km of walking trails. The park also has an operating lighthouse for visitors to explore. Park offers swimming, kayaking, and biking opportunities. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing may occur in the park; however, visitors are reminded that the park is closed during the winter season and parking is available at the gate only.
