A straw hat, red-haired braids and a pinafore define Canada’s most loved fictional character, Anne of Green Gables. Meet the head-strong orphan and re-live her youthful escapades and mishaps within the memory-filled rooms of her home – Green Gables – where images from the blockbuster 1908 novel blend with the real life experiences of local author Lucy Maud Montgomery, who drew inspiration from the idyllic farmstead and its red woodland pathways.

As of August 18th, the house and washrooms at Green Gables will be open until 6 PM daily until Labour Day (September 4th) to accommodate changing visitor trends. The visitor centre and barn will maintain standard hours of 9 AM to 5 PM daily. As always, visitors be able to enjoy the grounds and walking trails after hours.

Green Gables is currently undergoing construction work as part of a site redevelopment project to improve overall visitor experience. While there may be noise, dust and possible interruptions in some services, regular dates and hours of operation are in effect.  Parks Canada will continue to provide quality services and programming during the construction period.
