Blink and you miss it, and really it is like a movie with one sample of the movie, and that is the only scene worth seeing. Mind you, a nice walk, or picnic. Close to Railway Museum, so tie them together. River view is spectacular.

Nice to step away from the city and take a walk in nature. We saw many squirrels and a fox! We also enjoyed the carvings in the trees.

We stumbled upon this park after seeing the Railway Museum. We walked along the paths with a couple of strangers and looked for the carvings in the trees together. Very enjoyable.

Stop at the visitors center and pick up a map for where the carvings in the trees are located and then get your group to stop them. We had great fun!

We went for a run through this park on our visit to Prince George. It took a bit to get there from our downtown hotel, but once we did, we totally enjoyed running along the river!

We were looking for a nice quiet place toward the dog and maybe give her a swim. This is the place to go. We went 2 days in a row..
