Norris Point is located just off the Viking Trail, Route 430, which progresses from L’Anse aux Meadows and St. Anthony at the northern tip of Newfoundland south to Deer Lake. It is considered a park community by visitors to the region even though it is not physically located within the Gros Morne boundaries and its economy and culture have been and still are tied to its resource base. Although resources have been traditionally defined as extractive, resources may include the people and activities, as well as natural surroundings which offer no harvested commodity. These resources will become more important in a tourism context when recognized and celebrated.
