A really great botanical park and camping facility located on the owner's own property. The plant museum has adorable dioramas with materials collected from all over Canada. I frequent this place in the summer for relaxing on the trails, and it is open in the winter for the first time as the owner has just retired. Bring some cash for... More

This private park is a very interesting for adults and children alike. The owners have painstakingly made paths, made signs describing the local vegetation. Make time to look into the building with dioramas of each province's flora. This place is testimony to an eccentric-nature-loving work, and it is a treat to see.

We visited this site based on the positive reviews, and found this place to be most disappointing and underwhelming. The best part of the trip to this location is; it was not too far from P George = at least we did not waste too much time getting there. I would not advise visiting this location. WC

This area is thanks to one man, Jim Good. He devoted his life to making trails and marking the plants so you know what you are seeing. There are picnic grounds and camping available. The trails are easy and coming up to the lake is a treat. At the lake is a small cabin where you can sit and enjoy... More

An astonishingly complex network of rustic trails through the woods, leading through an informal arboretum of trees from across Canada, and natural wildflower groupings, all identified by informative signage. Peaceful and inspiring. A true labour of love, and a wonderful place for photography of flora and fauna. Highly recommended for plant people and those who love nature and aren't averse... More

This park is about 30 minutes north of Prince George. It's actually someone's private property, but has been lovingly turned into a nature park with trees, flowers and other plants from all over Canada. There is a little museum at the entrance and marked trails throughout the property, and the owner was very happy to show us around when we... More
