I'd heard about the Goodsir Nature Park before, but this was my first time visiting it. It's situated not too far out of Prince George on Old Summit Lake Road. A lovely little place, very quiet and serene. Walking the trails was a good workout,...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,...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...More
