Ovens Natural Park is a privately owned 180-acre pristine reserve of coastal forest, located on the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia, along the scenic Lighthouse Route near Lunenburg. For hundreds of years, people have been drawn to the incredible beauty, diverse geography, fascinating history, and spiritual solace that make The Ovens Natural Park so unique. Every year, thousands of park visitors hike the spectacular trails along the cliffs to view the famous sea caves, or "Ovens" for which the park was named.

The park also includes a small museum, playground, pool, animal farm; kayaking available. Restaurant and takeout.
