- Catching trout campfires and peace and quite. Weather is unpredictable can have a taste of all the seasons in a day. We had nights of 85 one day next was blowing 40-50 mph and pouring rain. Pack in and pack out your garbage. Site have cattle guards surrounding camp ground so cattle are not a issue as have been in the past. MoMA deer and her fawn came for a visit after the long weekenders left.Written July 4, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- As part of our geotourism adventure, we visited the Nicola Valley Museum and Archives in Merritt, British Columbia. Although the Museum was closed due to covid, we searched for and found a nearby geocache called "Jesus Garcia". We learned that he helped form the transportation system that made the gold rush possible in this area. Before leaving the area, we admired the colorful murals on the outside wall of the Museum and Archives building.Written August 12, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Beautiful park with some shade trees and a playground. Features about a dozen picnic tables. 2 bathroom structures.
Of course the highlight is the spray park. Big highlight for the kids on a hot day.
Didn’t see any soap in men’s washroom.Written August 5, 2019
- We needed to stop for a rest, to take the eyes of the road since the drive from the Okanagan was stressful due to weather condition. A lovely Park, very clean, it’s obviously well cared for.
There were some kids around, seemingly having a great time.
Thank you for providing such a nice place.Written October 14, 2020
- This is a great space for the community, attention to detail, staff is readily available to help. Large areas for children and a train that runs through the Nicola Valley in minature. Just a great space to spend time, a very comfortable meeting place.Written March 15, 2019
- We were driving and saw the signs for Laurie Guichon Memorial Grasslands. There are various signs once you get there describing the grasslands, as well as the wildlife. It also educates one about the watershed. It is near Merritt, British Columbia.
The grassland area is named after Laurie Guichon, who was a fourth-generation rancher in the Nicola Valley of the historic Gerard Guichon Ranch and husband of Lt.-Gov. Judy Guichon.
Its a good area for bird watchers. Its also a good area to look for other wildlife.Written September 25, 2015
- My sister and I were looking for a geocache that was hidden on the hill outfside the cemetery. After we found it, we decided to explore the cemetery and gained an interesting history lesson about Merritt. We noticed that the well-maintained grounds had gravel in some parts and grassy areas in others. A large, bee-hive shaped monument, made of stones inlaid in cement, sat at the entrance. It was surrounded by lush green plants and colorful flowers. We observed that older graves were located in the gravel and had upright headstones. The newer section was all lawn and had flat headstones flush with the ground. Owned and operated by the city of Merritt, this cemetery offers in-ground burial for both caskets and cremated remains. Trees and benches dot the interior.Written September 3, 2020
- We stopped at the site of Merritt's old visitor centre to search for our first geocache of the day. As we followed the given coordinates on our GPS, we walked a cool and shady forest trail. From a posted sign, we learned that we were on the Godey Creek Trail known for its mountain biking, hiking as well as running. Visitors can bring their dog as they are allowed in the area. Bird watching is popular here. In addition, there is a picnic stop with spectacular views. It was a pleasant and easy uphill walk to locate the geocache. After finding the cache, we returned to our vehicle to continue on our adventure.Written December 15, 2020
- As my sister and I geocached in the city of Merritt, we visited Trinity United Church. We read that the church was destroyed by fire in 2019 and was rebuild through fund-raising efforts. Services were cancelled so we could not go inside but we walked around the building, looking at its white siding, bell tower, brown roof and steeple. Building of the original, old church was started in 1908 by Presbyterians and completed in 1910. The land on which it sits was purchased for $400. Parking is available for your vehicle while you explore this landmark.Written September 3, 2020
- We have stopped here often, camped or just a nice picnic. The two areas are separated by a fair distance. The park gives a real Outdoor, almost wilderness feel. We would certainly recommend to stop or camp here.Written October 19, 2020
