Robot is partially correct Just Me. The park is known by the locals as the Churchill Park or Churchill National Park. It's official name is Wapusk National Park, which was established in 1996. Wapusk is the Cree word for white bear. It is an immense lowland area along the western shores of Hudson Bay, from the Churchill River, up to near the top of Manitoba to the Arctic Circle and spans 11,475 square kilometers of tundra, muskeg, lakes and rivers. The park lies on the transition between boreal forest and Arctic tundra. The geology, biodiversity, and cultural history of the area all contribute to the unique wilderness character of Wapusk National Park of Canada. Beside home to polar bears, it’s also home to woodland caribou, Arctic and red fox, Canada goose, lesser snow goose, swans, and many other species. It provides critical habitat for hundreds of thousands of waterfowl and shorebirds. Churchill receives tens of thousands of migratory birds in the spring, including Pacific and red-throated loons, Hudsonian godwits, snowy owls, arctic terns, merlins, golden plovers and Ross' gulls. Visitors can enter the park through the services of tour operators, but access to this remote park is otherwise limited. My father worked in Churchill in the early 1950s. There was no national park or amenities then; it was still primitive and rough – like a frontier town even into the 1960/70s. Things have changed now with so many tourists coming from all over the world. My brother, who’s been there, says it’s almost civilized ;-) Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park is on an island connected to the mainland of the province of Alberta via a causeway. It’s very vert small in comparison to the Wapusk NP.

I copied what the photographer had given. I am sure he meant Churchill, Manitoba. See which refers to the place as "Churchill National Park" although it has to be Wapusk National Park, Thanks for your comment, Just Me. :)

The title for this photo is very misleading. I believe that the photo would have been taken at Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. Churchill Park is no where near here. Churchill Park (aka Winston Churchill Prov. Park) is in Alberta near to Edmonton. However there are no Polar Bears anywhere in this vicinity.
