The following is a list of all provincial parks and protected areas within British Columbia. As of June 2015, there are a total of 1,029 protected areas in the British Columbia Parks and Protected Areas System, covering a total of 14,063,250 hectares (34,751,000 acres), or 14.4% of all lands in the province.[1]

Designations[edit]

The BC Parks and Protected Areas System consists of five different designations:[1]

  • Provincial Parks: Significant protected Crown lands, divided into three classes:
    • Class A Parks: Dedicated lands to preserve their natural environments. Development is generally restricted for recreational facilities only.
    • Class B Parks: Additional activities and uses are permitted, provided that they are not detrimental to recreational values.
    • Class C Parks: Managed by a local board, and are generally smaller, providing local recreational amenities.
  • Recreation Areas: Land set aside for recreational use by the public. It is also land that is being evaluated by BC Parks from both a protected area value and an economic opportunity perspective to determine whether the area should be "upgraded" to full protected area status or returned to integrated resource management lands.
  • Conservancies: Lands that are protected and maintained for biological diversity, natural environments, and recreational values. These lands are also explicitly recognized for social, ceremonial and cultural uses of First Nations.
  • Protected Areas: A natural area that generally has existing or proposed activities that are normally restricted from a provincial park, such as an industrial road, pipeline, transmission line or communications site.
  • Ecological Reserves: An area reserved for its ecological importance, and providing suitable scientific research and educational purposes, representative examples of natural ecosystems or ecological recovery from human activity, habitat for rare or endangered native plants and animals, and/or unique and rare examples of botanical, zoological or geological phenomena.
