Ontario Park Ridges

Hello park lovers!

Are you ready to hit the road and collect park shields?

A unique shield for each park

Each operating park has its own design, reflecting the identity of the park.

Designer Ulla Clark and Ontario Parks Marketing Specialists collaborated with staff across the province to create a special design for each provincial park.

We loved seeing the final designs, picking out the little nuances of our favorites.

Now that the whole set is ready, it’s fun to look at them side by side.

Not only can you find all of our park emblems on our reusable bags, but you can also find them on our puzzles, tea towels, Buff, and beach towels!

Meet the designer

Ulla Clark has collaborated with Ontario Parks since 2015, designing their park merchandise collections and now their latest project Ontario Parks Crest. She has worked as a screen printer and freelance designer and illustrator since 2006 for LUprints.

Ulla was educated and worked in the forestry sector before changing careers, and has a deep love for nature and the environment, and it shows in her work!

Ulla spends as much time as possible outdoors, camping and exploring with her husband, a wildland firefighter, and their two daughters. She wants to pass on her family’s love for nature and how important it is to preserve it for future generations through provincial and national parks.

“Working on this shield project with Ontario Parks has been the highlight of my career as a designer,” says Ulla. He hopes everyone enjoys collecting them through their Ontario Parks Passports!
