“Great Family Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

My kids are grown now, but we visited often when they were young. Whether we played in the park on warm days, or inside Exploration Place on the not-so-warm days, it was always a worthwhile time.

“A day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

It is a very nicely groomed park in the middle of Prince George. Lots of good trails and a wonderful setting. A very good place to visit.

“Park of mixed feelings....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Fort George Park is a great place to take the kids. There is a playground, water park, biking and walking paths, museum, and mini train. There is a fee for the museum and the train. The park is on the Fraser River and there are many community events held here, including a great Canada Day festival every year.
The mixed feelings come from the history of the park. The park was built on Lheidli Tenneh land when the railroad came through and the people were displaced to Shelley. There is still a graveyard and memorial in the park to acknowledge this.
