It is a very nice place to walk and look at nature and we loved the little men carved into the trees.

The best park in Prince George, nice walking trails, good swimming in the river. The best place to take your dog for a swim in the river.

This park has appeal to those who want to have a place to go for a walk in the woods. Having the Nechako river right there adds to the appeal and there is a boat and canoe dock for those wishing to go out onto the river as many do. We have walked our dogs here for a long time... More

Lovely spot for a hike and an afternoon spent in nature. Great place to bring the dogs with lots of space for them to run around.

A lovely park on the outskirts of Prince George where you can happily walk your dog and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife (though sadly we didn't see any Black Bears!) Like most parks in BC, it's very well maintained and kept tidy by the people who use it.

The Park is easy to get to - but only if you have a car. It consists of mature woodland and much of it is on the riverbank. It's not large, but as way of relaxing at the end of a day's drive excellent. Look out for the faces carved into the trees - an added bonus for us was... More

Just seemed uncared for. Stagnant water in the creek and lots of mosquitos... we turned around after only being on the trail for 5 minutes.

Beautiful open walking park. Smooth trails, huge Cotten wood trees. Bordered by both the Nechako and Fraser Rivers. Has look out points built just off the paths. Great nature walk. Dogs welcome. Great to just get out and submerge your self in the true nature. Bring your camera you will definitely want to take pictures, especially on the wooden bridge.... More
