My husband and I visited the Goodsir Nature Park this past weekend for the first time. It is an absolute gem of a place. We had the good fortunate to spend some time with Mr. Jim Good, the owner and developer of this incredible place. He generously shared with us the history of the Park, his love of nature and his other passion, music. We left there feeling so much gratitude for this amazing place, its story, and most of all, for having the pleasure to meet such an incredibly generous human being. Mr. Good is a man who will restore your faith in humanity.

Today we had the pleasure of visiting Goodsir Nature Park. It was a wonderful way to spend our day. It is a short drive from Prince George and the perfect way for the whole family to spend an afternoon. It is run by a delightful man who has dedicated his life to this nature park. The trails are well marked and full of information. It is an easy walk with multiple lookout spots and tables to sit at if you have your own lunch. Several outhouses were also located on the trail. Don't forget to stop in and look at the quaint museum and speak with Mr. Good himself. He is a wealth of information. The bugs were not bad but do remember your bug spray. TIP: You might want to wear boots if it has been raining.

We had a great afternoon visiting this gem of a hike that is short drive away from PG. John has done a wonderful job of creating an easy walking trail with great information on fauna and trees on the trails. This was our first visit and we would like to revisit.

I am writing in the hope that Trip Advisor will change their map. This park is located North of Salmon Valley on the Old Summit Lake Rd NORTH. I have had at least a dozen different vehicles come to my yard looking for this place. I live on the Old Summit Lake Rd SOUTH approximately where this map indicates. Please have Trip Advisor correct their map. For those of you looking for this park, you have to stay on the John Hart Highway until the top of the hill past Salmon Valley.

Sorry, I had to put a rating, this is no reflection on Good Sir Nature Park, as I have never been there. I am sure it is lovely!

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, but sadly they are currently not very accessible for people with mobility issues. The variety of trees and flowers was quite stunning. There are plenty of rest spots along the trail, which is nice, and there are many picnic tables to eat at. And the park is even pet friendly! Jim Good, the proprietor, gave my friends and I a personal tour of the trails. Definitely worth a visit, especially for nature lovers.

It's amazing what one mans vision can do. Jim good has taken years to makes paths, plant natives and maintain this little place of peace and tranquillity. Jim has created a mini museum and its worth a look in. Whilst there is no admittance fee , donations are accepted - honestly when you take the time to wonder through this park and stop, look and listen you'll start to understand why Jim is so passionate about this place. .

I've been to Goodsir Park twice now. It is really neat and unique spot to explore and learn about the flora of Canada. The amount of effort put in by Jim Goode to make this park is incredible. There is more than you can possibly take in a visit, each time I come I learn a few new things. I really enjoy seeing how many aspens have been climbed by bears (the scars from their claw marks are evident) and learning about the various trees and flowers of the region and Canada in general. It is like a real-life version of a plant/animals/trees book that identifies each species and it's range.

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 a donation: the park is one man's 25+ year labour of love.

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.
