Nice place to walk around as well as some great scenery located near the river. You sit there and enjoy the view, have a picnic or whatever you fancy doing. If it's raining you can always go to the museum

A great place for a walk or the kids to play. Large open space in the middle of the city. A nice place to unwind.

A very large park along side the river bank. views to die for, and so many different tree's throughout the manicured lawns. Has a place for everyone, water park, kids playground, dog area, band stand, museums and wide open spaces. Even has a mini train and station.

By far my favorite park in Prince George. Pack a picnic and watch the kids play in the water area or ride the train for 2$. Just be cautious of the lake ledge, There is no warning to the drop off.

This is a great spot for your kids to burn off some energy. Has a good playground with lots of climbing apparatus , model train engine, slides, etc. The water park (summer only) is also great fun for the younger set. There is several benches for adults to rest their weary bones at these venues , or bring a blanket... More

The park has something for everyone. Playground for children, picnic sites for families, lots of room to play, a band shell with great entertainment . My favourite are the meditative walks where you see an abundance of flowers and shrubs as well as the river that flows below.
