    Description

    Gatineau Park, a few kilometers from the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, is a classic example of a park confronted by management issues related to the wildland-urban interface. The park, comprising 36,300 hectares of forested and hilly Canadian Shield terrain stretching 50 kilometres in length, extends into the National Capital region, which has a population of over one million. A new Master Plan was approved for the park in 2005. This study uses a case study approach where Gatineau Park is intensively investigated to obtain insights that might be helpful to other parks in managing recreation in the wildland-urban interface.
