Thomas Raddall: I first walked through the proposed park in August 1994. Because of budget concerns, it was uncertain whether it might ever open. A community association was formed to operate the campground with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources. Thomas Raddall, which opened in 1997, is 678 ha (1,675 acres) featuring a variety of natural habitats including tremendous coastal scenery and excellent white sand beaches. The park has day-use picnic facilities, but also features 43 car campsites and eight walk-in tent sites. Port L’Hebert: Bowater Mersey Paper Company owns and manages more than 304,000 ha (755,000 acres) of land in western Nova Scotia to support its newsprint and lumber manufacturing operations. To celebrate its 50th year of operation in 1979, Bowater Mersey constructed a small public nature park on land they owned near the Atlantic Ocean. This “Pocket Wilderness,” as they called it, was so popular with the public that they have built several others throughout southern Nova Scotia.
